When Fanboy Comics is not providing you with the latest in geek news and entertainment, the staff and I hope 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, 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.
The prints are absolutely stunning and printed on 13” x 19” archival paper; you can view them here. This is a phenomenal opportunity to help a fellow geek in need. Not only will you be donating to a great cause, you will receive one of Moose Baumann’s most memorable art prints.
