Outhouse readers know that Jude Terror is a hardcore shock blogger who lives to say things that are edgy and in your face, but that doesn't mean that I can't get serious, you know, once in a while, for a good cause.
Today, The Outhouse received the following email about comic book artist Bob Larkin, who you may be familiar with from his painted covers for Marvel back in the day on books like Savage Sword of Conan.
From Terry Allen:
Bob Larkin, whose done hundreds of paintings for Marvel, DC, Fleer and numerous others is in desperate need of help. Bob's wife, Fran, has been battling various forms of cancer for the past 12 years and the endless medical bills has put an incredible financial strain on the family. Fran is currently recovering from her latest surgery and Bob has become her caregiver 24/7 leaving him unable to take on new work.
I've been working with Bob the past few years doing primarily Doc Savage based collectible items with the profits going to Bob and family.I've worked with Bob the past couple of years on a sketch book featuring Doc Savage as well as Batman, Stewie, the Shadow , and a whole host of others and it's finally come back from the printers this week.The books are square bound, 8 ½ x 11" 48 black and white pages and are individually signed and numbered by Bob.
The paperback edition is $20.00 (plus shipping) and there are two deluxe hard cover editions available that are in short supply.100% of the sales are going directly to the Larkins as well as anything else that might interest you on site.
So go get your asses off the internet and... well, get back on the internet, go to that site, and buy some stuff. Could you do any less?
