By Request Extra: Please Consider A Matching Donation For Your GOTG Ticket To The Writer Bill Mantlo

Bill Mantlo, the co-creator of Rocket Raccoon and writer of a bunch of fun comic books in the 1970s into the 1980s is in need of constant care. If you enjoyed the Guardians Of The Galaxy movie featuring that character, I hope you'll consider a quick donation to Mantlo as described here or a donation to the Hero Initiative, a group that takes care of creators in need more generally almost certainly including at one point in the past or one point in the future a creator that worked on some of the material or characters that were a part of that movie. It's a nice thing to do.

Mantlo saw and enjoyed the movie, too. Kudos to Marvel for making that happen, and for their support of the Mantlo family.
