Tides of Hope Comic

If you’re going to Supanova Perth this weekend, you might want to pick one of these up. It’s only $10 and all proceeds go to the Premier’s Appeal to aid victims of the recent Queensland flood. Here’s the official info from Supanova and it has contributions from an impressive array of creators, such as Tom Taylor, Colin Wilson, Chris Claremont, Greg Horn, Jason Paulos, Alex Maleev and more.

Inspired by Sydney based comic-book writer Christopher Sequeira, who edited the comic and contributed a story illustrated by hotshot Marvel Comics artist (and visitor to Supanova in Brisbane) Leinil Francis Yu, the comic became reality through his and the combined efforts of Art Director and contributor, Tim McEwen, Publisher and Supanova Event Director, Daniel Zachariou, and all the other amazingly talented individuals who provided their time and art; 47 creators in all!

Sequeira relates that “Seeing true heroism, sacrifice and pathos on my nightly TV screen made me think of the potential of some creative folk reflecting and paying tribute to that in comics-form; so, why not put out the call for help? And our professional colleagues, world-wide, did not shirk that call – they leapt at the chance. They made it a brilliant, moving collection.

Tides of Hope’ is 36 pages with 100% of proceeds from its $10 cover price going to charity while an auction of all the artwork, kindly donated by the illustrators, will ultimately be added to that pool of funds with comic-art collector, dealer and expert Royd Burgoyne also donating his time and expertise to do so.
