The Uncanny X-Men #100 Project Launches From The Hero Initiative

The Hero Initiative is launching their Uncanny X-Men 100 project. This is where they get blank covers of a certain issue then give them out to get original sketches from some of the best talent in the industry and then auction them off to raise money for the charity. In this case its Uncanny X-Men #12 and there are 100 different sketch covers available and soon to be auctioned on ebay.

Who is The Hero Initiative? Well, from their website: The Hero Initiative is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. Hero creates a financial safety net for yesterdays’ creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It’s a chance for all of us to give back something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment.

The Hero Initiative is a great cause and helps fans and pros give back to those that have given us so much over the years.

Here are some of the covers done:
