When Fanboy Comics is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the FBC staff hopes to offer our readers a myriad of opportunities to give back to the community. We love reading comics, watching movies, and playing video games, but we are never happier than when we are able to help others in need. With Geeks Care: How You Can Help, FBC will provide you a variety of causes that would greatly appreciate your time.


This week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help will focus on the great folks at Whedonopolis and Fandom Charities, non-profit organizations established for the purpose of raising funds and awareness for charitable organizations through fandom events, conventions, and other geek-related activities.  On August 9, 2014, these two great organizations will be hosting An Evening at Caritas: A Night of Karaoke to honor actor Andy Hallett.  Fans in the know will remember Hallett as the actor behind Lorne, the lovable and gentle Deathwok Clan demon on the TV show Angel who ran the karaoke bar Caritas, where all patrons - good and evil - were welcome.  The proceeds from this event will benefit Kids Need To Read, and there will also be a canned food drive to benefit SOVA Community Food and Resource Program.  The Fanboy Comics staff hopes that you will join us in celebrating the memory of Hallett while having a great time and lending your help to two incredible charitable organizations.

The focus of this week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help was brought to the attention of the Fanboy Comics staff by Dave Kellett, the extremely talented creator behind the web comics Sheldon and Drive and the recent documentary STRIPPED.  Kellett is one of hundreds of cartoonists across the country to have participated in a collaborative fundraising art book to benefit Team Cul de Sac (TCDS), a fundraising effort led by professional web designer Chris Sparks in honor of his friend, Richard Thompson, the cartoonist behind the Cul de Sac comic strip. Thompson has been diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, and Team Cul de Sac is endeavoring to raise money and awareness for Parkinson's disease research.  Through both the purchase of the fundraising art book and the upcoming Team Cul de Sac Drink and Draw event taking place in Charlotte, NC, you can help to find a cure for Parkinson's disease.

Given that it is the start of a long weekend, this week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help will endeavor to remind its readers that there are plenty of opportunities to give back to your community . . . and to have fun while doing it!  On Monday, June 2, 2014, CGFGC (Canned Goods for Good Charity) will be hosting their 6th Annual CGFGC Charity Ball & Swag Bag Party at King King Hollywood, and all proceeds from the event will benefit Peace Over Violence, a non-profit, multicultural, community-based, and volunteer-centered organization dedicated to building healthy relationships, families, and communities free from sexual, domestic, and interpersonal violence.  Offering an evening of comedy, music, raffle prizes, and free swag, we hope that you will enjoy an evening of fun and entertainment while learning how you can help.

In this week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, there are so many great opportunities for giving back in the comic book community that I will be highlighting TWO great charitable causes.  Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP), DC Entertainment, and Top Cop Publishing are celebrating heroes in a variety of ways this week, honoring those individuals who have had a positive impact on our lives by encouraging others to become heroes in their own right.  These organizations have offered their support to Superman Hall of Heroes and the Wounded Warrior Project, and Fanboy Comics wants to join them in educating its readers about these important organizations and how you can help.

In this week's edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, we would like to turn our attention to Sina Grace, the co-creator (along with Daniel Freedman) and artist of Image Comics' new comic book series, Burn the Orphanage: Reign of Terror. Grace has teamed up with The Lustgarten Foundation to donate all 20 pages of art from the series’ first issue to support pancreatic cancer research. The series of auctions, titled Compassion vs. Cancer, will go entirely to The Lustgarten Foundation’s efforts in raising awareness for the under-funded and highly-deadly cancer.  Fanboy Comics, having lost a dear friend to pancreatic cancer, wants to join Sina Grace in educating its readers about this important organization and how you can help.

In this Free Comic Book edition of Geeks Care: How You Can Help, Fanboy Comics is excited to share the wonderful work that Blastoff Comics is facilitating in tandem with their FCBD festivities.  (For those unfamiliar with Free Comic Book Day, on the first Saturday in May each year, participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE to anyone who comes into their stores. This is a great way to bring those who may be unfamiliar with the comic book medium into the fold.)  On May 3, 2014, the North Hollywood-based comic book shop will not only be giving away free comics and having artists [Megan Levens (Madame Frankenstein) and Zack Finfrock (Atomic Robo, Threadless.com, TeeFury)] in the store to do free sketches for guests, but store owners Jud Meyers and Scott Tipton will also be teaming with Children International (www.children.org) and encouraging their customers to help them sponsor 10 children in 10 nations around the world, providing these children with medical care, proper nutrition, clothes, and education.

Geeks Care: How You Can Help once again shines a spotlight on the fine folks at Blastoff Comics, a top-of-the-line comic book shop in North Hollywood, CA. Blastoff stocks both current comics and graphic novels as well as an astonishing collection of vintage comics for sale, providing customers with rarities that they just cannot find anywhere else. What truly makes Blastoff and its owners, Jud Meyers and Scott Tipton, stand out is their commitment to helping others in need. A portion of all of their proceeds are donated to charity, with the recipients changing on a monthly basis. This month, Meyers and Tipton have chosen to highlight the RAINN.org (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), and we want to join Blastoff Comics in educating our readers about this important organization.

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of G.I. Joe, Geeks Care: How You Can Help has turned its attention to an organization that not only loves all things Joe but is also doing its part to help our Real American Heroes.  Several members of The Finest: A G.I. Joe Costume Club, the world's premier G.I. Joe/Cobra costuming group in the world (portraying the uniforms of the basic G.I. Joe and Cobra infantry troopers, the more specialized operatives of the Cobra Viper corps, and more), have banded together to create a Joe-themed 2015 calendar, the proceeds of which will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.  The calendar will portray all of your favorite female characters (plus a few twists on classic characters) and has aptly been named the Girls of The Finest 2015 calendar.  While the profits will be donated to charity, the members of The Finest need your help to make this terrific project a reality.

The latest installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help highlights Bill Mantlo, a legendary comic book writer for Marvel in the '70s and '80s.  While readers may not be familiar with his name at first glance, the recent popularity of Marvel Studios' Guardians of the Galaxy film has brought Mantlo once again to the forefront, as he is the co-creator of Guardians character Rocket Raccoon.  Like many talented creators who no longer have the opportunity to work in the comic book industry and who do not own the rights to their well-known characters, Mantlo has no way to afford the continuing medical bills that have ravaged him since a debilitating brain injury nearly 20 years ago.  While wonderful organizations like The Hero Initiative exist to support comic book creators, writers, and artists in need, Mantlo's story is an all too common one, and even The Hero Initiative needs the help of fans like you to give back to those who have given us so much.
