If you can spare a couple of minutes and a small amount of money in these difficult times, please take a moment and consider helping out the Hero Initiative and creators in need on the anniversary of the passing of Marvel editor Mark Gruenwald (June 18, 1953 – August 12, 1996) and amazing artist Mike Wieringo (June 24, 1963 – August 12, 2007). This will be the five year anniversary of Mike’s passing.
Every year, we commemorate these two gentlemen on what is now known as “M-Day” (formerly “G-Day”)
This year, we’d like the celebrate the spirit of generosity and cameraderie amongst the comic book community that both of these creators embodied by encouraging their friends and fans to make a donation to the Hero Initiative.
The Hero Initiative is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping out those members of the comic book creative community who have fallen on hard times financially. Assistance from the Hero Initiative has made a difference in the lives and situations of many great practitioners of our art.
