Bob Wiacek Fundraiser

Bob Wiacek, a comic book inker who was very active in the 1980's, is suffering from glaucoma. If anyone knows anything about the comic book industry, there's no such thing as pensions or health insurance for freelancers no matter what your contribution to the company's bottom line.

Wiacek, who was born in 1953, provided inks for DC and any Marvel title of note during the 1980's. His credits include inking Dave Cockrum on his classic run of X-Men, Carmine Infantino on the Star Wars comic book, and he inked some of Paul Smith's work on X-Men.

He has started a Go Fund Me page to raise money for his medical treatment and taxes that are due. Not to mention his loss if income due to the glaucoma. I got so much enjoyment from his work in the early days of my serious comic book collecting, I was happy to contribute a little something.

Here's a link to the fundraiser page. 

Below is a scan of his inks over Frank Miller on the cover for The Spectacular Spider-Man #56, July 1981.
