The Hero Initiative which provides a financial safety net for comic creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work.Gfest is all on board with
Leading up to Comic Con International, The Hero Initiative has several really cool items up for auction on eBay. It also has the opportunity to hang out in a hotel room with recently demoted DC Comics co-publisher Dan Didio and likely be treated like crap.
You and four other "lucky" fans will be escorted up to a San Diego hotel suite where you will be given the honor of meeting the Great Didio himself. Presumably, since you're laying out some serious cash for the event, Dan won't treat you like a scumbag, which is the way he usually treats fans at Comic Con panels. Although our money says he still treats you like shit.
Marvel Comics Joe Quesada has also agreed to meet five fans for The Hero Initiative. It will be interesting to see who raises more money for The Hero Initiative at the end of the auction. Stay tuned to Gfest for the final tally.
And if any of you actually win the Dan Didio auction, we would be happy to submit you a list of questions.
