Just click on the Long Beach logo on the right side of the Hero homepage, make your ticket purchase online, and the con will donate 10% to Hero AT NO ADDITIONAL COST TO YOU! It's just something they're doing ’cause they're nice peeps!


Or, hey, we’re already here at the Hero blog, right? Here’s a link. Use this one!

"The Process," Josh Medors Spider-Man

We hope that by now, you've seen the PR on the Josh Medors Spider-Man print available on Free Comic Book Day, May 7, at Packrat Comics in Columbus, Ohio.

And we really hope you're currently scratching through your wallet to pony up and buy one!

But even if not, we figgered we'd pull back the curtain and let you see the process behind, with Josh's amazing pencils up top…

His stellar inks right here…

And the whole sheebang, colored by by ace hue-master Tom Smith right here!

Keep in mind, and we really hope you get the gravity of this situation…Josh did all this with cancerous tumors in his spinal column. It being the spine, Josh is having some difficulties with and numbness in his extremities.

And he was still able to do all that!

Get yourself a print.

Russ Heath walkin' a lot!


Folks,
Russ Heath is BLOWING UP the recovery curve after his knee replacement surgery. He was out of the rehab facility eight days after the operation, even though 14 days was expected. He has the (hopefully!) final appointment with the aftercare specialist today.

I was fortunate enough to have lunch with Russ Heath yesterday, and he was in great spirits, having a grand ol' time and cracking rapid-fire jokes, just like always.

Good news, this.

Josh Medors drawin' stuff!


Folks,
A brief note on Josh Medors, courtesy Josh's wife, Charlotte. Josh continues to battle a rare form of cancer.

"It turns out Josh’s white blood cell counts were two one-hundredths of a point away from being too low to continue chemo. We're working on getting those back up. In the meantime, his body is having a tough time fighting off infections due to this. He is fighting a bit of a cold, but he is keeping his spirits up. He has been drawing like crazy! It seems he is either sleeping or drawing all the time lately. It is really nice to see him drawing again!"

Speaking of Josh drawing, we'll have some news on a cover gig for Josh and a great product tie-in as well coming soon. Eyes open.
