A Tribute to Bill Mantlo on December 6
Floating World Comics will host a benefit show for comics writer Bill Mantlo, who suffered severe head trauma when he was struck by a car while rollerblading in 1992. He currently resides in a brain injury rehabilitation nursing home.
Jason Leivian, the owner of Floating World, has asked "hundreds of artists" to donate an illustration of Rom the Spaceknight, a minor Marvel character, toy figure and cult icon that most recently appeared in an episode of South Park. All proceeds from the December 6 show will be delivered to Bill’s brother and caregiver, Mike Mantlo.
