Karl Kesel Sells Comics Collection To Pay For Son's Medical Expenses

He and his wife having adopted an infant boy who was born with a heroin addiction, Karl Kesel is selling his Silver Age Marvel comics collection to pay a medical bill which runs into the tens of thousands.

Kesel's list of great works in the field of comics is long and illustrious.  My personal favorites would be inking John Byrne's pencils on Superman in the 80s, and writing Superboy (drawn by Tom Grummett) in the 90s.

Look for a Suspended Animation column on him in coming weeks.  And, go here for an in-depth story on the Kesels' adoption.

Sheen as Spider-Man?

Believe it or not, the actor was championing the concept at one time.  No doubt, such a prospect has already spawned countless heated debates among fans.  Read about it here.
