Make Mine Marvel

I am delighted beyond delighted to announce that Marvel Entertainment has made clear its intentions to help Gene and Adrienne Colan.

In a warm conversation this morning, executives at Marvel offered Adrienne and I some of the many things that they plan to do for the Colans to provide immediate and long-term relief. I will provide the details soon.

For now, I thank all of you for your encouragement and assistance in this matter. Please continue to support the auction and book sale.

Gene Colan is still my all-time favorite Daredevil artist. He drew a picture of DD for me at the San Diego Comic Con back in the 80's.

I wish him and his wife well. And I can't wait 'til the auction.

completely new to your site. i am so glad Marvel is stepping up to the plate and taking care of one of their own in an industry that saw so many greats ignored, not given credit or worse, die poor and pennyless. technically they got paid for their work so they aren't owed anything but a little respect would be nice.

congrats on your hard work to make that happen.

This is wonderful news! I started buying Marvel Comics over 40 years ago, and I'm so glad that Marvel is doing the good and right thing for Gene Colan.
