So, a few months back, when I interviewed Troy Wilson about Panels for Primates, he talked about a big name creator having recently turned in a script. He would not tell me the person’s name, but merely said, the person was ”Big, though. A dream come true.” I had no idea that by big, he meant Stan “The Man” Lee. And to see that pal of the blog, Dean Haspiel got to work with Stan on this charity effort was equally delightful. The new installment, featuring Lee and Haspiel launched today. Go. Read. Consider donating to Primate Rescue Center (and make sure to mention Panels for Primates).
Here’s some additional info to consider when checking out the story: “Other prominent contributors [to Panels for Primates] include Fred Van Lente (Cowboys & Aliens), Mike Carey (The Unwritten), Rick Geary (Treasury of Victorian Murder series), Stuart Moore (Namor: The First Mutant), David Petersen (Mouse Guard), Colleen Coover (Gingerbread Girl), Faith Erin Hicks (Zombies Calling), Carla Speed McNeil (Finder), and Roger Stern (The Death and Life of Superman). In all, 56 generous creators from seven countries have donated 127 pages of all-new material for the cause.”
So, I missed Denis Leary on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon the other night. Thanks to Fallon’s website, though I can embed snippets here at my site. Enjoy.
And here’s Fallon and Leary playing air hockey, with the loser giving $5,000 to The Cam Neely Foundation for Cancer Care. You have to love comedy that ultimately leads to charity.
