you know what is awesome

to sign and celebrate the release of

FRACTION IS DONATING HIS ENTIRE ROYALTY CHECK TO THE RED CROSS FOR HURRICANE SANDY-RELATED DISASTER RELIEF (phew. Breathe.)
The announcement of the book’s new contents and Fraction’s accompanying gesture, both of which are incredible, can be found here:
But I’ll let Fraction sum it up (from this Newsarama article):
Matt Fraction: All praise be to [Marvel senior editor Stephen] Wacker on this. I just kind of asked if we could do it and he was the one that had to make the pieces fall into place.
It’s amazing. It’s an amazing thing that he’s made possible. And Steve [Lieber] and Jesse [Hamm] and Matt [Hollingsworth] and Chris [Eliopoulos] have all stepped up, and we all understand what we’re doing — we’re dropping a book into our production pipeline going into the holiday. It’s crazy. But some people still don’t have power, so it ain’t that bad.
