Andy Mangels sends us a novel-length press release on Wonder Woman Day, a day of benefits for domestic violence shelters & crisis lines. It will be held in Portland, OR and Flemington, NJ. Adam Hughes, Allison Sohn, Gail Simone, and others will be appearing at the Portland benefit, while Neil Vokes, James Fiorentino, Rob Kramer, and Chris Muller will be in NJ:

One of the most recognizable female icons in the world, Wonder Woman debuted in American comic books during World War II, and was the super-heroic star of a popular television series in the 1970s. Now, for the third year in a row, the heroine brandishes her Amazon bracelets and golden lasso as a star-spangled symbol for a charity benefit for Portland’s most protective domestic violence shelters – Raphael House and Bradley-Angle House – and the Portland Women’s Crisis Line. Excalibur Comics will host “Wonder Woman Day” on Sunday, October 26th from 12noon to 6pm. The free all-ages event will include a quartet of comic book creators signing Wonder Woman comics and special art prints, as well as a silent art auction with over 150 of the world’s top artists contributing original art, plus costumed super-heroes on-site, raffles and prizes, rare memorabilia, and more!

Additionally, a second “Wonder Woman Day” benefit will take place on Sunday, October 26th, in Flemington, NJ, at Comic Fusion, as part of their “Super-Hero Weekend.” This East Coast event will benefit Safe in Hunterdon, a domestic violence shelter in New Jersey.
