Steve Dillon Hero Initiative Benefit a Huge Success

Thursday, June 25, 2009

Tonight's Steve Dillon signing and raffle in benefit of the Hero Initiative was a huge success, raising nearly $1,000! Steve generously donated nearly four hours of his time and signed books and drew sketches for dozens and dozens of fans with all proceeds going to the Initiative. The original art was won by three very lucky, very happy people, one of whom is yours truly (I promise no shenanigans - Steve did the drawing himself).

We plan on having photos and videos up shortly, including some exclusive breaking comic news! Stay tuned!

A little bit of trivia - While writing the first draft of his portion of the script, Hader was dressed as George Custer (he was filming Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian).

So drop by Jim Hanley's Universe today to pick up your copy of the new Spidey comic Newsarama calls a classic, signed by Bill Hader! And don't forget to check out Bill and Seth each week on SNL and Bill in the new Night at the Museum in theaters now!
