Some awesome folks are putting together a comic and activity book to benefit kids here in the Joplin area that were affected by the tornado called “Comics Express”. We’ve been asked to help spread the word about this book, and how you can help. Just head to http://www.indiegogo.com/comicsexpress and you can donate money to help fund the production of the book.
$20 gets you your own copy of the book, and makes sure that it gets into the hands of 16 kids here in Joplin. If you want to give more, then that’s great there are several donation levels, and gifts associated with all of them, up to and including signed books, and even original art!
The award-winning comic artists in Comics Express include:
Corey Barba – Yam
Chris Duffy – Bizarro Comics
Ellen Forney – I Love Led Zeppelin; I Was Seven in ’75
Felipe Galindo (Feggo) – Manhatitlan; cartoonist for The New Yorker
Caitlin Keegan – illustrator of Shakespeare’s Love Sonnets
