Celebrate Stan Lee for a Good Cause

L.A’s Golden Apple Comics is holding a two-fer event tonight at 7 p.m. On the one hand, it’s an art tribute titled “Under the Influence” to Stan “The Man” Lee, the de facto father of modern comics, the real father of most of Marvel’s most popular superheroes, and a dude who never made Spider-man consort with the devil. On the other hand, it’s a fundraiser for the Hero Initiative (formerly A.C.T.O.R.), a non-profit that raises money to help the comic creators of yore, many of whom need medical care, financial aid and more.

The tribute will actually have pro comic book artists there to draw you as a superhero in exchange for your donations, so you’re getting a little sumpthin’-sumpthin’ for your kindness. ? Rob
