WORLD PREMIERE
FOUR Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab “Grendel” scents

Hero Initiative, the non-profit organization that provides a financial safety net for comic creators in need, will head to the Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, August 11th thru the 14th, at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, 5555 North River Road, in Rosemont Illinois.

We are proud to announce that special guest and Grendel creator Matt Wagner will be heading up the Hero booth, #1341-1343, all day Saturday and Sunday to be on hand for the WORLD PREMIERE of FOUR Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab “GRENDEL” scents! The scents include:

MASTERMIND

Fragrance notes: An elegant cologne of olibanum, opoponax, leather accord, black amber, bois de jasmine, cade wood, pale balsam, orange blossom, oudh, black plum, bourbon vanilla, and sandalwood.
AVENGER
Based on Christine Spar, a fashionable and fiery journalist who adopts the Grendel persona to avenge the death of her only child and is consumed by the dark identity.
Fragrance notes: Plush vanilla bourbon and rum accord with pink pepper, patchouli, clove, pikaki, golden amber, caraway, tuberose, and jacarandá-da-bahia.
EXORCIST
Based on Brian Li Sung, Christine’s lover who, in the aftermath of her violent death, becomes haunted and possessed by what he sees as the “entity” of Grendel.
Fragrance notes: A refined lilac fougère with frankincense, labdanum, styrax, and dark musk.
HARLEQUIN
Based on Eppy Thatcher, a futuristic, gothic harlequin, addicted to a heinous hallucinogen with the street name “Grendel,” who leads chaotic attacks against the corrupt Catholic Church.

Fragrance notes: Psychotomimetic: pink grapefruit, white honey, orange blossom, saffron, champagne grape, elemi, guaiac, blonde tobacco, and olibanum.

Each 5 ml bottle is $26, with proceeds benefitting Hero Initiative. Try ‘em all!

Matt’s fans can also pick up a copy of the Wagner-covered Hero Comics, regularly $4, now only $2 at the con, and get it signed by Matt himself! And BPAL fans can also pick up on the very few “The Unknown” book/scent combos left. Fewer than 20 combos are left, which consist of a hardcover edition of The Unknown with an original bookplate illustrated by artist Minck Oosterveer and signed by Oosterveer and Mark Waid, AND a 5 ml bottle of Cat Allingham from Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab. the fragrance features distilled shadows, a bleak desert landscape at midnight: Myroswelia balsam, gaïac wood, obsidian musk, green cumin, patchouli, myrrh, Siamese benzoin, frankincense, champaca, and sand.

And of course, Hero’s new and exclusive Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide #41 will also be available for the mighty Chicago crowd. The limited edition of 500 copies features a GREAT new cover by Marvel Comics legend John Romita Sr. at $35 the copy.
