The Hero Initiative provides help when comic book creators are in need, it's as simple as that. This volume presents an all-star line-up of incredible comic book talent who have come together, donating their time and considerable talents for a good cause. Writers include Kurt Busiek, Howard Chaykin, Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, John Layman, Dave Sim, Bill Willingham. Artists include Kaare Andrews, Howard Chaykin, Kevin Eastman, Rob Guillory, Gene Ha, Sam Kieth, Dave Sim, Ashley Wood. Gallery: J. Scott Campbell, Arthur Adams, Mark Schultz, Matt Wagner, Adam Hughes, Darwyn Cooke.
Featuring dozens of great writers and artists, and new stories from many favorite series, like American Flagg!, Chew, The Maxx, Jon Sable, Red Star, as well as original concepts, as well as an astounding selection of short "Heroes In Action" stories by more than a dozen creators telling their own firsthand experiences with the Hero Initiative when they needed a helping hand, including Gene Colan, Stan Goldberg, Ralph Reese, and more.
We also love the Arthur Adams recreations of classic comic book covers, and we reproduce his wonder Fantastic Four #82 take here. He also reconceives The Incredible Hulk #181 (the first appearance of Wolverine) and Marvel Feature #11, The Thing and The Incredible Hulk.
There's also LOTS more great material here, far more than we can list in a brief description. This is one of the best Hero Initiative projects we've seen. Includes a special thanks to Mike Grell (Jon Sable), and a special, very eloquent introduction by Mike, detailing how the Hero Initiative helped him out when he was down and out from a nasty illness.
When you buy this book you will not only be getting great works by an amazing array of comics' best creators, you will be giving back to those creators you grew up on in their time of need!
