Star Wars Bikers for Cancer
Tommy Lee Edwards, the fantastic artist who provided covers for my Dracula’s Revenge comics from IDW, is taking part in the Ride for Kids on May 4,2008. For this event, thousands of motorcyclists ride to raise money for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, which funds research for a cure for brain tumors in kids.
This is a great, worthy cause all by itself, but to sweeten the pot, Tommy lined up permission from Lucasfilm to provide limited-edition prints to the first 300 donors who contribute $30 or more (plus shipping costs). Appropriate to the event, these feature a squad of stormtrooper biker-scouts from Star Wars, and Tommy signs and numbers each print. Be sure to check it out.
