These days it seems every day we hear sad news about creators passing or getting sick and being stuck with mountains of medical bills. Sal Velluto is the latest name.
Sal Velluto has produced a lot of Phantom work throughout the years. He has produced work for Egmont that has been featured around the world in Fantomen, Fantomet and Frew along with him recently finished the Hermes mini series.
What is great is that several phans of Sal, his Phantom and his other work, have banded together and started several fundraisers to help him pay the bills associated with his illness.
Erik, a devoted Phantom phan, has also donated one of Sals covers for Egmont from his personal collection for an auction with all proceeds to go to the medical bills as well.
It is great to see so many phans from around the world both Phantom phans and other fans giving to help a gentlemen of the comic book world.
