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 Homes for Our Troops, and we want to join Blastoff Comics in educating our readers about this amazing organization.

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.

A few months ago, the Fanboy Comics staff received an online introduction to Siike (pronounced "Seek") Donnelly, a comic book creator and writer who survived a brain aneurysm in 2010.  Forced to rebuild his speech patterns and relearn how to walk, Donnelly forged a strong will and a desire to help other brain aneurysm survivors.  With his newly formed company, The Naïve Project, Donnelly seeks to publish an original graphic novel featuring art donated by 55 different artists and educational information regarding brain aneurysms, the proceeds of which will go to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation.

Renae De Liz is many things: artist, writer, wife, and mother.  The staff of Fanboy Comics was absolutely in awe of her most recent creation, Womanthology, and we have been eager to learn more about all of her upcoming projects ever since.  When we learned that Renae was taken to the hospital with a very serious infection in her blood and kidneys, all the while with two little boys to take care of and no medical insurance, we knew that we wanted to help in any way that we could.

This week, veteran comic book colorist Moose Baumann (Transformers, The Flash: Rebirth, 52, Green Lantern) reached out to the comic book community in an attempt to raise money for his wife’s cancer treatment.  As is the case for many freelance artists within the comic book industry, publishers do not provide health care as would a normal employer.  In addition, acquiring health care when you have a pre-existing condition, like cancer, is more difficult, as providers are often unwilling to insure you.  With no health care coverage and mounting medical bills nearing $90,000, Baumann is selling high quality prints of his incredible work for only $20.00 each.
