i don’t believe anyone’s made that connection previously, but I take it as a compliment of the highest order. I don’t think it shows up particularly in my mainstream superhero work, but both gentlemen (and others) inform some of the considerations in our more personal stuff. I would strongly consider giving up a few vestigial limbs if I could employ a fraction of Patterson’s talent.

Less than 25%; as much as the general degradation of analogue tools frustrates me, I still prefer the tactile response of pencil and paper. I covered this in more detail previously.

"A feeble rubious hint of morning light bled sideways into the sky, each puddling bit of brightness making the place look uglier with sharpened detail of its decrepitude, and the shouting made it worse. What am I doing here?"

— Paul Theroux, The Last Train to Zona Verde

"What a deplorable existence I lead in this absurd climate and under what frightful conditions! How boring! How stupid life is! What am I doing here?"

— Arthur Rimbaud, letter from Yemen

HOLY CATS! This is another important update to the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good! Please read and donate! Thank you!

Superstar artist Joe Quinones has joined in the fray by offering up the original artwork for his famous Batgirl of Burnside pin-up!

This piece joins:

  • a page of original Superman comic book art by Stuart Immonen and Josef Rubenstein
  • an all-new sketch of Superman by Stuart (done with Copic markers on Stillman and Birn Zeta series extra heavyweight 270gsm plate finish 8.5” x 11”)
  • a 9”x12” commission by Tom Fowler (no art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest)
  • Rocket Raccoon and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, as rendered by Calamity Jon Morris
  • six copies of the rare variant cover of Code Monkey Save World as prizes in the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good.

So, how does the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good work?

All you have to do to qualify for a chance to win is donate $5 or more to one of the charities featured below before 11:59PM on August 18 and then forward your receipt to kevin.church@gmail.com after you’ve donated. You can choose any of these projects, or all of them. I don’t care. If you want to make a note during your donation that it’s for my birthday fundraiser, that would be nice, but it’s not at all necessary.

Winners will be chosen on the evening of Tuesday, August 19 and announced later in the week (We might be videoing the raffle portion, maybe? I need to talk to some people.)

Now, for the charities we’re raising money for this year.

This is a local nonprofit I heartily endorse
Horizons for Homeless Children is, as their website explains, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of young homeless children and their families by ensuring that they are prepared for school success. They do terrific work in the local area and I’ve donated what I can to them in the past.

I also like these projects on DonorsChoose.org:
Check This Out! at Frances J Warren Elementary School in Tuscon, AZ, serving underprivileged kids in a very poor district with a wide variety books to help them discover how great reading can be. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $421 to go.

Notebooks for Writing at Mosaic Prep Academy in New York City, giving kids access to the very basics that will help them start creating worlds for themselves. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $833 to go.

More Books For Our Classroom Library in Gautier, MS, offering up literary options that will engage kids and let them learn how great reading can be. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $677 to go.

Creating a Classroom of Readers and Writers at James Bilhartz Junior Elementary School in Dallas, TX, helping fourth-graders get the basics to help them organize, read and write about library books. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $837 to go.

Developing a True Multicultural Perspective through Literature in Atlanta, GA, teaching teens about the world at large through works that offer alternative perspectives on our world. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $930 to go.

Please note: if you are a comics creator who would like to donate a book or original art or a commission or something to this effort, please let me know at kevin.church@gmail.com. I’d love to get some more incentives in place for donations.

Hey! This is an important update to the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good! Please read and donate! Thank you!

Okay, we’ve had two days of me begging for money and you ogling the art and it’s time to kick things up a notch with more art, this time featuring Rocket Raccoon and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, as rendered by Calamity Jon Morris.

These two excellent pieces (which will be raffled off individually) join a page of original Superman comic book art by Stuart Immonen and Josef Rubenstein, an all-new sketch of Superman by Stuart (done with Copic markers on Stillman and Birn Zeta series extra heavyweight 270gsm plate finish 8.5” x 11”) and a 9”x12” commission by Tom Fowler (no art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest) as prizes in the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good.
