Geeks Care: How You Can Help - Golden Apple’s Get-a-Sketch Day

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.

The latest installment of Geeks Care: How You Can Help highlights Golden Apple Comics, one of the premier comic book shops in Hollywood, CA. On Saturday, February 22, from 1:00-3:00 p.m., Golden Apple will be hosting a Get-a-Sketch Day, where - for $29 - attendees will receive a comic book and sketch from Kaboom! artists Mike Kunkel (Herobear and the Kid), Natasha Allegri (Adventure Time: Fionna and Cake), Noelle Stevenson (Adventure Time), and Hannah Nance Partlow (Adventure Time: Candy Capers), as well as a membership to The Hero Initiative. 

The Hero Initiative is a publicly supported, not-for-profit corporation that provides a financial safety net for yesterdays' comic book creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It's a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment. Since its inception, The Hero Initiative (formerly known as A.C.T.O.R., A Commitment To Our Roots) has had the good fortune to grant over $500,000 to over 50 comic book veterans who have paved the way for those in the industry today. 

Readers interested in learning more about the The Hero Initiative or in making a direct donation may do so by visiting the organization's website. In addition, please remember that Golden Apple Comics' events are always a great time, so you won't want to miss the opportunity to meet talented creators and to do your part to help others in need.  By joining in on the Get-a-Sketch Day fun, you will be ensuring the vitality of the comic book industry while supporting the creators that made it what it is today.
