Baltimore Comic-Con is coming up this weekend from September 6-8th, and in their yearly offering of a yearbook featuring the work of their exhibiting comics creators, they’re going the extra mile this year by donating a portion of the proceeds from the yearbook to a support fund for Seth Kushner’s battle with leukemia. Seth is the pop culture photographer behind Leaping Tall Buildings and comics writer on Schmuck who has long been a supporter of the comics-creator driven con.
The theme for the yearbook for 2014 is Matt Wagner’s Grendel and supporting characters, and Baltimore Comic-Con will also be hosting The BCC Yearbook: Grendel Original Art auction on September 6th at 5PM to support Seth’s treatment. You can also help Seth Kushner by donating here.
