Okay, so a sweet thing happened.

When we were doing the fundraiser, a bunch of people kindly offered to send me stuff. I said no for lots of reasons, even thought the thoughts were very kind.

I also made a rule that I wouldn't bid on anything no matter how much I wanted to.
So there were hundreds of auctions (the last day alone, we closed almost a HUNDRED), and of course, some of them, well, I WOULD HAVE BID ON LIKE BONKERS if I hadn't made the rule to not do so.

There were a few such auctions.
One was that spectacular Jose Garcia Lopez book and FLASH sketch cover. Jose is my favorite living comic artist. I just love every doodle from his pencil. And it was DANG HARD to pass that one by.

But also, it was okay because the whole event felt so important.

Hello, all. A lot of people have said very kind things to me about the #ComicWritersChallenge and I keep saying it was totally a team effort, but I hadn't yet had time to sit down and REALLY explain what that means in this case.

So I'm just going to quickly embarrass them.

What happened was, I had a goofy, sloppy idea to challenge some writers friends to donate art they cherished to raise money for Black support organizations.

To give you an idea who smart I am, I got the name of the hashtag wrong in the very first thread.

It was a good idea but like a lot of well-intentioned stuff it could have gone absolutely nowhere, it could have fizzled out entirely. I again want to thank people like @mrtonylee and @mguggenheim who jumped aboard right away, without hesitation.

But there was no structure.

Okay. This is going to take a bit of explanation and I will probably mess it up. Let me get all this out and hopefully it will make some sense.

It's about Wonder Woman, and current events. It shouldn't take too long.

Okay, I've said this often but when I was a kid, we were farmers in the boonies, we were dirt poor. I love comics but buying them in a store was a luxury we couldn't afford. Sometimes my cousins gave me theirs, sometimes we would find them at garage sales.

I've also often said that Wonder Woman was THE catalyst that made me love comics, and that's true. But it's a bit more nuanced than that. See, I read her in a JLA issue, and she was cool and amazing. But the few issues of her own book I found actually had the opposite effect. 3/
