so a while ago, i was asked if i wanted to take part in an anthology the good folk at the comic book alliance were putting together called the spirit of hope. the book was, in the words of the cba, to be "...a unique anthology of short stories from the world’s greatest creators dealing with the impact of disasters on people’s everyday lives. Creators include Liam Sharp, Henry Flint, Nick Abadzis, Glenn Dakin, Mark Buckingham, Al Davison and Peter Hogan with stories covering all aspects of human life in the face of catastrophe. The collection comes in two editions – one with a beautiful Jimmy Broxton cover and a second with a cool Michael Allred cover. All profit from the title will go to help disaster victims via Second Harvest and the New Zealand Red Cross."
these guys managed to put this thing together in record time considering over 90 artists and writers donated work to it. the book is currently taking PRE-ORDERS and should be coming back from the printers in a matter of days.
