Hey, Rama readers! Want to be a hero for some kids in need? Then listen up!
For those who haven’t been following the destruction in Joplin, it’s been horrific. Buildings have been flattened, and the current number of fatalities has hit 125. Jeremy Haun, a Joplin resident and a Top Cow exclusive artist, has been tweeting images from the scene if you want to learn more.
But one local shop — Hurley’s Heroes — has been standing up for the people who need it. They’re looking for all-ages comics to give to children whose lives have been upended by the tornado, and they need your help to do it. Here’s their address:
1515 W. 10th
Joplin, MO 64801
Two other comics creators are also helping out — Trickster masterminds Skottie Young and Scott Morse, who have announced via Twitter that all proceeds from their art this week will go to Joplin. So what are you waiting for, Rama readers? Take these fine gents’ example and be a hero for the people of Joplin, get the word out, and let’s get those books!
