In late 2000, a consortium of comic publishers came up with the idea to create a financial
safety net for comic creators, much in the same fashion that exists in almost any other trade
from plumbing to pottery. By March of 2001, the federal government approved The
Hero Initiative as a publicly supported not-for-profit corporation under section 501 (c) (3).
Since its inception, The Hero Initiative has had the good fortune to grant over $700,000 to
over 50 comic book veterans who have paved the way for those in the industry today.
The Hero Initiative is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated
strictly to helping comic book creators in need. Hero creates a financial safety net for
yesterdays’ creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials
of life, and an avenue back into paying work. It’s a chance for all of us to give back
something to the people who have given us so much enjoyment.
