Comments Off on Super Swag – A Good Cause
io9.com (which I read every day) has a really touching article about comic book writer and inker Karl Kesel (it’s also where I’m getting all the info for this Super Swag feature.
Karl is adopting a baby, which is already an expensive enough proposition, but this baby was born addicted to heroin.
A baby having to go through detox is tough enough, but the medical bills are a staggering $67,000!!! (I liked one of the i09 commenters who asked if they were feeding the baby crushed diamonds.).
So Karl, who helped to create the 1990’s Superboy and has written and inked tons of comics is selling off his comics collection to help pay the bills.
