The Simonsons are good people

I was looking over the Comicpalooza site, when I happened upon the Autograph and Photo Prices. Even though I find the act of charging for signatures largely deplorable, I was curious what people are demanding. While there are some free, most range from $25 to $50.

Two in particular stood out to me.

The Hero Initiative is a fantastic and sorely needed organization for comic book creators.

The Hero Initiative is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. Hero creates a financial safety net for yesterdays’ creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It’s a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment.

This further cements Walt Simonson as one of my favorite artists. Apparently, he’s a good human being as well.
