Comic Con Palm Springs is Here!
Explain organizers, "Comic Con Palm Springs has brought together some of the most passionate and talented people from the world of comic books and entertainment to produce an exciting new comic con in one of the most famous and fun cities in the world. We’ve spent years working, observing, and listening to what people want and sought from their comic con experiences. Not only working with talent and exhibitors, but also being passionate fans ourselves, we wanted to apply all the great ideas and suggestions everyone had – yours and ours together. Each year we plan to make Comic Con Palm Springs something special."

Happy Anniversary, Streetbar!
"Born and raised in suburban Detroit, MI, Dick Haskamp received his BA in Communication and Theatre Arts from Eastern Michigan University in 1976. Upon graduation, and having served in the US Army, Dick moved to Santa Monica, CA where he lived for fifteen years until moving to the desert in 1990. In 1991, Dick and good friend Hank Morgan bought a little 'hole in the wall' bar/restaurant known as "A StreetBar Named Desire", now known simply as "StreetBar".
StreetBar was the first Gay business on Arenas Road and it is the oldest and longest running bar serving the LGBT community in the desert. In the course of his 25+ years in the desert, Dick has served on the Boards of Directors for the original Desert Gay Rodeo Association, The Desert Business Association, The Desert Gay Tourism Guild and the AIDS Assistance Program. Dick and his staff at StreetBar have been very active in fundraising for various charities including AAP, DAP, The Center, Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, Smile Train, and many others."
