Kirby 4 Heros

At the end of this month, on the 28th is Jack Kirby's 97th birthday and the date for the Kirby Heroes 4 Heroes initiative. Kirby's granddaughter, Jillian Kirby, created the initiative to help comic book creators in need.

The Hero Initiative (http://www.heroinitiative.org) is a nonprofit organization started in 2000 to create a financial safety net for comic creators, much in the same fashion that exists in almost any other trade from plumbing to pottery.
