It's the first ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need.

   HERO creates a financial safety net for yesterday's creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work.  It's a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment.

Since it's inception, The Hero Initiative has had the good fortune to grant over $700,000 to the comic book veterans who have paved the way for those in the industry today.  For more information, visit www.heroinitiative.org or call 626-676-6534.
