Release Body: Hamtramck, MI August 6, 2008 – The
Hamtramck Idea Men, George McVey and Michael
Marcus, are assisting with the success of Detroit's celebration
of World Hoop Day on August 8, 2008 by distributing
two hundred comic books to underprivileged children. The comic
books, issues #1 and #2 of PULP DREAMS, their flagship title,
each provide an introduction to one of the two stories that appear
back-to-back in issue #3 onwards.
Business Officer Michael Marcus sees this as a way to
help those less fortunate, as well as those less physically skilled.
"When I was a kid, I felt out of place because I wasn't good
at physical activities. This way, even those who come out and
can't hoop will have something to enjoy." Artistic
Director George McVey adds, "With two issues
going out to kids, they'll get to swap with friends like we used
to in my neighborhood."
Idea Men is a creative arts partnership whose projects
run the gamut from comics to fine arts, also offering professional
creative services, including web design and silk-screen printing,
as required. For further information, please contact Michael
Marcus at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (313) 368-0791.
