Even the most talented and prolific cartoonists can hit hard times.
Case in point: Usagi Yojimbo creator Stan Sakai is in need of some financial help after his wife, Sharon, who has suffered from a debilitating illness for quite a while now, had a long stay in the hospital. Sharon’s back home now, but she needs 24-hour in-home care and several costly medications. The Cartoon Art Professional Society, a group of comics creators, has organized an effort to help.
"Wanted to portray Kara doing something mighty…like holding up a carpark. She is always depicted in a standard Superhero stance, sitting in a field or some sort of pervy upskirt shot. Oops. My daughter has just woke up! Better get her milk. That’s me …Superdad!"
"Continuing the illustrations of an inspirational and aspirational Supergirl. I just feel she should be as commanding a presence as her cousin in the comics and just as Iconic as Wonder Woman."
