Recently I received an email alerting me about the situation colorist Moose Baumann is facing.
“Jeff, thought you’d be interested in this for the website. It’s from BleedingCool.com”
And the following article:
Moose Baumann is one of the better known colourists in comics, generally because of his willingness to be outspoken about all sorts of people and issues. Which has got him in trouble before.
But now he’s asking for your help.
Moose’s wife had been treated for breast cancer, and after chemotherapy and surgery, she was in remission.
However the cancer spread which needed more chemotherapy and surgery but, because she had lost her job, she also had lost her health insurance – and could get no one else to insure her privately due to her previous condition
As it stands, the pair have to pay off the remaining cost of the medical bill for treatment, currently standing at above $90,000. And are looking at losing their home as a result.
Moose is selling prints of his work online to help pay off their immediate debts. If you can help him, in this way or any other, please do get in touch.
If you’re interested or have any questions, you can email Moose at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The prints are on sale at http://img24.imageshack.us/g/countdowncvr50copy.jpg/ and they’re going for $20.00 each.
I’ve picked up five or six of my favorites by Ethan, and I’m planning on ordering more, but for a different reason. I’m sending them to the artist, Ethan Van Sciver, to autograph. Then I plan to arrange to raffle off the prints in Ravenswood Comics in Utica NY, Comix Zone in Syracuse NY and Captain’s Comics in my old stomping grounds in Charleston, South Carolina. And all the proceeds will go to Moose for his wife’s medical bills.
Anyone interested in buying tickets when the raffles go up, let me know. And I encourage anyone to buy one (or more!) of these beautiful prints.
