Help Len Wein restore his life's work!

Early this month, award-winning comic book writer and editor Len Wein lost his home to a fire. He and his family were safe; sadly, their beloved dog perished.

Wein also lost a lifetime of awards and comics and books and games and toys and artwork. That's something, considering the scope of his comics career: The co-creator of Wolverine and Swamp Thing (among others), he served as writer and/or editor for several companies, on a multitude of comics -- including X-Men, Spider-Man, The Hulk, Fantastic Four, Daredevil, Watchmen, Superman, Batman, Justice League of America, Star Trek, The Twilight Zone, The Simpsons, Futurama, and many others.

Friends and fans are working to help him restore the collection of comic books he's worked on. Details at The “Let’s Rebuild Len Wein’s Comic Book Collection” Project.
