HOLY CATS! This is another important update to the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good! Please read and donate! Thank you!

Superstar artist Joe Quinones has joined in the fray by offering up the original artwork for his famous Batgirl of Burnside pin-up!

This piece joins:

  • a page of original Superman comic book art by Stuart Immonen and Josef Rubenstein
  • an all-new sketch of Superman by Stuart (done with Copic markers on Stillman and Birn Zeta series extra heavyweight 270gsm plate finish 8.5” x 11”)
  • a 9”x12” commission by Tom Fowler (no art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest)
  • Rocket Raccoon and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, as rendered by Calamity Jon Morris
  • six copies of the rare variant cover of Code Monkey Save World as prizes in the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good.

So, how does the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good work?

All you have to do to qualify for a chance to win is donate $5 or more to one of the charities featured below before 11:59PM on August 18 and then forward your receipt to kevin.church@gmail.com after you’ve donated. You can choose any of these projects, or all of them. I don’t care. If you want to make a note during your donation that it’s for my birthday fundraiser, that would be nice, but it’s not at all necessary.

Winners will be chosen on the evening of Tuesday, August 19 and announced later in the week (We might be videoing the raffle portion, maybe? I need to talk to some people.)

Now, for the charities we’re raising money for this year.

This is a local nonprofit I heartily endorse
Horizons for Homeless Children is, as their website explains, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of young homeless children and their families by ensuring that they are prepared for school success. They do terrific work in the local area and I’ve donated what I can to them in the past.

I also like these projects on DonorsChoose.org:
Check This Out! at Frances J Warren Elementary School in Tuscon, AZ, serving underprivileged kids in a very poor district with a wide variety books to help them discover how great reading can be. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $421 to go.

Notebooks for Writing at Mosaic Prep Academy in New York City, giving kids access to the very basics that will help them start creating worlds for themselves. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $833 to go.

More Books For Our Classroom Library in Gautier, MS, offering up literary options that will engage kids and let them learn how great reading can be. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $677 to go.

Creating a Classroom of Readers and Writers at James Bilhartz Junior Elementary School in Dallas, TX, helping fourth-graders get the basics to help them organize, read and write about library books. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $837 to go.

Developing a True Multicultural Perspective through Literature in Atlanta, GA, teaching teens about the world at large through works that offer alternative perspectives on our world. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $930 to go.

Please note: if you are a comics creator who would like to donate a book or original art or a commission or something to this effort, please let me know at kevin.church@gmail.com. I’d love to get some more incentives in place for donations.

Hey! This is an important update to the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good! Please read and donate! Thank you!

Okay, we’ve had two days of me begging for money and you ogling the art and it’s time to kick things up a notch with more art, this time featuring Rocket Raccoon and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, as rendered by Calamity Jon Morris.

These two excellent pieces (which will be raffled off individually) join a page of original Superman comic book art by Stuart Immonen and Josef Rubenstein, an all-new sketch of Superman by Stuart (done with Copic markers on Stillman and Birn Zeta series extra heavyweight 270gsm plate finish 8.5” x 11”) and a 9”x12” commission by Tom Fowler (no art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest) as prizes in the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good.

No good murder mystery can thrive solely on the strength of its mystery. After all, stories are about the journey more than the destination. With that in mind, She Died in Terrebonne works so well because writer Kevin Church and artist T.J. Kirsch focus so much attention on the main character and setting. This web comic (now collected in graphic novel format) focuses on a Japanese-American private detective named Sam Kimimura. Sam is hired to track down a missing girl, only for the investigation to morph into a murder mystery.

Sam alone is a compelling enough figure to make this comic worth a read. But coupled with the 1970’s setting and the way Kirsch takes full advantage of that setting in his artwork and design, She Died in Terrebonne emerges as a stylish and energetic addition to the genre.
She Died In Terrebonne is featured on the same page as Brian Michael Bendis, Alan Moore and Ed Brubaker in this article on 9 Great Murder Mystery Comics at IGN. The follow-up, Hard Drive To Hell will be released very soon, but you can buy the original on Comixology or get a collection in book form from Amazon.

Just a quick note to let you know that all proceeds from the digital comic — now available for purchase on Gumroad – are being donated to The Hero Initiative, a charity that helps comics creators in financial need. It’s a good cause and we thank you for your support in this. So if you’ve already bought the comic, thank you, sincerely. If you haven’t here’s a good reason to give it a shot.

You can’t have a future without a past.
