Elite Comics is very proud to announce we have made a donation to Hero Initiative of $1194! The money was raised at this years Planet Comicon ( Thank you Chris!) from the Game with Will Wheaton fund raiser run by Elite Comics Flight Crew Member Jon “Jonny Cakes” Hook! Jon ran the game room all weekend and sold the tickets for the game with Wil.
Hero Initiative is a fantastic group that raises money to help out the Silver and Golden Age comic creators who gave us all the incredible heroes and villains we enjoy reading about today. These artists and writers created the universes of super hero adventures in an era before residuals and creator rights. Hero Initiative helps them out with medical bills, rent, anything really, as a way of saying thank you for the amazing work they did to basically invent the comic book industry.
Thank you to every one who participated in the fund raiser. Make sure to check out their website http://www.heroinitiative.org and donate some money to the heroes of our past!
By the way we still have a couple of the Space Cadets games signed by Mr. Wheaton for sale at the shop with all proceeds going to Hero Initiative ,come by and get one!
