Assorted stuff and updates and hoo-hah

Update the first:
I’m sure many of you are following the ongoing lung-recovery saga of Steve Gerber at Steve’s own blog:

I had occasion to be in Vegas last Saturday, 02 FEB, and spent the day hanging out with Steve. We spoke rather extensively about politics (what else?) and the Beatles. It was a good day. Steve is making solid progress, and we all hope like hell he’ll be outta the hospital soon.

UPDATE: Steve Gerber passed away Feb. 10, 2008. Godspeed, Steve, and rest in peace.

Update the second:



The Hero Initiative will have a dunk tank at the Orlando MegaCon, as ref:

Oh, yes we will. Who’s going in? You’ll see…

Update the third:

The kind folks at Marvel Comics have donated to Hero the script and eight penciled pages to the final book Mike Wieringo was working on when Mike passed away. Working hand-in-hand with Marvel, Hero has recruited a dozen all-star artists to each do a page or two and finish the book. The result will be a 48-page ’Ringo extravaganza hitting in June. MUCH more info to come. In the meantime, here’s a page from the book by Humberto Ramos.
