Roy Thomas and the Avengers raise money for Hero Initiative! YAY!

I’ve mentioned this a few times in the last weeks…Roy Thomas penciled a cover for an issue of Avengers, and I got to ink it, and we auctioned off the artwork to raise money for THE HERO INITIATIVE, a very worthy cause.

…and as the auction ended, the cover raised $635 for retired cartoonists with medical bills and no way to pay ’em (which is a big part of what HERO does).   What a lovely way to end the alarmingly busy, but pleasant month of May.  Tra la!

There’s plenty of covers left to auction off from this AVENGERS 100 set…here’s a few on the block right now!

It’s always a great cause, and some of these Avengers covers are the best sketches I’ve ever seen….(see below)

    That’s some sweet stuff, and a great cause. Too much money for me to be able to spend, but if I could….

    How about something I can afford — besides the Ultimate SpiderMan 100 book, has Hero Initiative done any more collections of these sketch covers that have been done the past few years? I got to get a bunch of people to sign that collection at the Boston Comic Con last month, which is pretty sweet.

  2. They’ve already published the AVENGERS 100 collection. I signed a whole bunch of ’em at a store signing about two weeks ago.

  3. I think this is the one cause we can all agree is well worth supporting!

    Cheers!
