Portland's own Mayor/Superhero Sam Adams takes time out of his busy schedule of fighting injustice and reducing the crime rate to help raise money and awareness of the problems facing homeless youth in Portland! SAMDROID will appear with the Alter Egos Society in booth 206 for ONE HOUR ONLY, 3-4pm on Saturday, April 16th.
The SAMDROID costume was the winning entry in the Project Mayor-Man design contest held by local organization The Alter Egos Society. The winner received a $100 cash prize, sponsored by Things From Another World, and members of Alter Egos then fabricated the costume to Mayor Sam Adams's specifications.
Mayor Adams will be signing autographs and posing for photographs as SAMDROID, and donations are being collected for p:ear, a local group dedicated to providing creative mentorship for homeless youth. An action print of SAMDROID was designed by local cartoonist Les McClaine, artist of the new Tick series.
