Help rebuild Len Wein’s comic book collection!


From Mark Evanier’s website:

You know Len Wein. Award-winning comic book person. Co-creator of Swamp Thing and Wolverine and various other X-Men. Editor of Watchmen. Writer, at one time or other, of all the major characters: Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, Hulk, you name it. That Len Wein. A great guy.
On April 6, 2009, a fire destroyed most of the home he was sharing with his wife Chris and their son Michael. As Len tells us, Chris was out when it happened. The men were home and asleep. He awoke to find the world in flames around him and he managed to get himself out and to save Michael, as well. Sadly, their beloved dog Sheba perished that day.
So did Len’s collection of books and toys and games and artwork and those things we accumulate that help define and enrich our lives. You have stuff. He had stuff. Insurance will fix the house but many things, including his comics, were not covered. Some of us thought it would be grand if his friends and fans pitched in to help him recreate those shelves of the comic books he’s worked on.

CBR interviews Greg Pak about “War Machine” #5 and #6

“War Machine” writer Greg Pak drops a lot of hints about what’s coming up next for Jim Rhodes in an interview with Comic Book Resources. Here’s an excerpt:

“War Machine” #6 kicks off the series’ second arc, a story called “Homeland.” “It’s the highest stakes fight of Rhodey’s life, and the worst nightmare a patriotic soldier could find himself in,” Pak said. “We’re talking Rhodey versus the United States of America. Or, to coin a phrase, World War War Machine? Rhodey’s discovered that the greatest threat to the safety of millions has found safe haven right here at home. But before he hits his target, he’ll have to face Jason Strongbow, a.k.a. American Eagle. And, possibly even more terrifying, his own mother. That’s right, Mother Rhodes plays a huge role starting with issue #6, and she’s awesome.”

CBR interviews Pak and Chow about “Secret Identities” and “The Citizen”

“Secret Identities: The Asian American Superhero Anthology” hits stores today — and Comic Book Resources has interviewed co-editor Keith Chow and “The Citizen” writer Greg Pak about the book. Here’s Pak discussing “The Citizen,” his contribution to the anthology:

On the surface, it’s just a crazy buddy story with the president and a super soldier fighting Nazi gremlins. How much bigger and goofy comic book can you get? But on a deeper level, without even talking about it, it creates an image of an Asian American who is a symbol for America. That’s useful symbolically just because there has been a trend forever for Asians to be associated with aliens. Asians and Asian Americans have long been treated as foreigners.
