The Hero Initiative is a charity dedicated to helping comic creators in medical and financial need through its 100 Projects, where 100 artists draw an original cover on a special anniversary issue. The latest being 2012′s best-selling comic, The Walking Dead #100. Artists including The Walking Dead illustrator, Charlie Adlard, will contribute original covers, as will other top talents such as Dan Brereton, Ian Churchill, Kevin Eastman, Joe Jusko, Dale Keown and Whilce Portacio. And yes, even The Walking Dead creator/writer and Image Comics partner Robert Kirkman will contribute.
A public viewing of all 100 covers will be scheduled for winter of 2012-13, along with auctions of all the original covers. A book collecting all the art will be available in 2013.
