Of Darwyn Cooke and critical joints

Today is a good day at Hero Banking Central, as we just deposited a $10,000 check (!) from our ol' pal Darwyn Cooke from his now-famous "12 Days of Christmas" auctions last month.

Yep, 10 large is a good haul, but wait ’til you hear what Dar has up his sleeve for NEXT year. Think "even bigger," think "even better." And in the interim, next time you see Darwyn, thank him—he deserves it!

The deposit is well-timed, as yesterday was the day 1960s war comics legend Russ Heath went under the knife for knee replacement surgery. We're happy to report that the surgery was a success, and Russ is resting comfortably. He'll need the rest, as rehab is several months long, but if there's one tough SOB who will get through it, even at age 84, it's Russ Heath. Hero has been and will be along for the ride to help Russ out as well, of course.
Meantime, we HEARTILY encourage you to send get-well cards and good wishes to Russ in care of Hero Initiative at:

Original Archie #600s...almost done!

There's a mere two weeks left, folks! Bid now on our eBay store before they're all gone!

This week's batch includes Nick Bradshaw, above, and Rachel Ordway, below. Rachel is the 17-year-old daughter of famed artist Jerry Ordway!

And does this mean we're nice and close to the start of the 100 Avengers auctions? I guess it does...
