Arcana Comics’ own Joe Martino (SHADOWFLAME, RIPPERMAN), recently donated close to five hundred copies of his book, Shadowflame, to the charity, Comics For Heroes.
We’re 175 Graphic Novels and 227 Characters strong and growing every month!
Comics For Heroes, “dedicated to sharing the joy of reading and the appreciation of art through comics,” donates books to children’s hospitals and sends them to troops overseas. Their hope is to support our troops and also to promote “literacy and artistic creativity through comic books.”
Joe Martino, a long supporter of the troops and POW/MIA, felt that his books “would be better in the hands of soldiers and sick children to help them take their minds off of the things they need to deal with daily.” He donated three boxes, around five hundred comics, of his book, Shadowflame.
Created, written, and drawn by Joe Martino. When Officer Tom Wyatt’s wife, Janice, was murdered he tried to find solace in his own grief and despair. He attempted to end his own life. Instead he found himself transported to a ship orbiting the Earth. The aliens aboard explained that he could not kill himself for he was the last of a chosen line. A family line which possessed the perfect genetic Imprint to receive the ‘gift of power’ and become a third holy man of lsht. So after hearing the story of Isht and his family, Tom agreed to take the power. In a painful ceremony he was endowed with powers that set him apart from other men. He was now a superman, capable of vast feats of strength, flight, telekinetic force bolts and all the rewards of being a holy man. This gave him not only great powers, but a reason to live.
