CHICAGO, IL (October 1, 2008) â€” Devil's Due Publishing announced today that it would partner with Hypergraphia Comics, the American Cancer Society and the Hero Initiative to assist comic artist Josh Medors' fight against cancer. Hypergraphia will donate a portion of the proceeds from the sales of their graphic novel, Sabbath: All Your Sins Reborn, to the Hero Initiative, to be used directly in Medors' battle with spinal cancer.
Devil's Due and Hypergraphia Comics will also host a special evening at The Bean Post Pub in Brooklyn to raise additional funds for Medors' medical expenses. The benefit event will take place Saturday October 4, from 8 p.m. to midnight. Medors, well-known for his art in the Sabbath series, has fought cancer since the beginning of the Sabbath line. Sabbath: All Your Sins Reborn is a special edition collection of the Matt Tomao/Josh Medors horror title, Pogrom.
"We are thankful for the support of Devil's Due and Hypergraphia," said Tomao. "They have really extended a kind hand to help Josh in his battle and gone above and beyond, a true testament to their friendship."
The Bean Post Pub is located at 7525 5th Ave. in Brooklyn.
