The Comic Industry Raises Money for Movember!


[Update: I've joined the mo party. Check out my space here, and donate!!!!]

For those of you unfamiliar with Movember:

“Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st  clean-shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month.  The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men.  Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.”

It’s a great cause, right? But what could make it even better? That’s right, comics! Jim Gibbons, over at Dark Horse Comics, has let me know that he’s set up a Movember group for “mo Bros and Mo Sistas who actively participate in the world of comics.” The group is set up for people who read, write, draw or just enjoy comic books, and of course, are growing a  ‘stache for Movember!

The group currently has 40 members, and has raised over $4000! The biggest earner at the moment, by a landslide, is Joe hill (yes, THAT Joe Hill), who has currently raised $1,656!

So, if you’re looking for like-minded mo bros, this is the group for you! Or, if you’ve decided to abstain from the event, and just want to donate to a good cause, get over there and give them some money!

I’m still undecided as to whether I’m going to join in. I currently have one week’s worth of stubble, under which a potential mustache is lurking, but I do not wear a ‘tache well… I look kinda like a sex offender… If anyone wants to see that, let me know if you’re willing to donate, and I’ll join in *gulp*
