Ready to Help Gene Colan? Stan Lee, Harlan Ellison and Walter Simonson Step Up

After 16 days of hospitalization, Gene Colan is taking regular walks now, but his doctors still aren't ready to release him yet. His shoulder injury requires that he receive extra care once he gets home and he’ll also be walking with a cane now. While his bones are expected to heal in another ten weeks or so, Gene (now 83) will need ongoing physical therapy.

The broken wing also means Gene won’t be drawing and, thus, will be unable to earn a living any time soon as much of his income depends on commissions.

So Gene’s friends responded with the three most important words in the English language: Let me help.

Items for an art and comics auction are now being collected and you'll soon see a piece from Gene’s pal Walter Simonson at Walter’s Facebook page… Harlan Ellison and Stan Lee are also participating.

Glenn Hauman of ComicMix will work with me to solicit artists for contributions beginning this weekend.

Details to come as this develops.
