Do you like comic books? And would you like to help a family in need?
In New York, Korean Community Services recently established a memorial fund for the family of Ki Suk Han, the subway murder victim who was killed when he was pushed onto the track and hit by a train.
Our friend Greg Pak, the writer behind comics like The Incredible Hulk, Astonishing X-Men and Vision Machine, is doing his part to help out. To encourage folks to donate, Greg has promised to send a signed comic book to anyone who contributes $25 or more to the fund.
Here are some more details on how it works:
In hopes of encouraging donations, I will send a signed comic book from any series I've written to anyone who donates more than $25 to the fund. We'll work on the honor system here -- send an email to vm at pakbuzz dot com answering the following questions and I'll hook you up:This is based on the honor system, so don't be a cheater, yo. You can send a check to Korean Community Services (KCS), 35-56 159th St., Flushing, N.Y. 11358, payable to "Korean Community Services" with the memo: "Community Fund for Mr. Han." (Checks are preferable, but you can donate online too.)
1. Please include your Twitter handle if you'd like a shout out online for the donation. And please tell me how much you donated so I can keep track and inspire others to contribute.
2. Please specify a character or comic book series that I've written that you like so I can pick a good comic to send you. UPDATE: If there is a specific issue I've written that you're missing, let me know what it is and I'll see what I can do.
3. Please confirm that you're 18 or older.
4. Please include a US mailing address. (Sorry for not being able to ship overseas!)
Props to Greg lending a helping hand.
