Its the most anticipated number four in comics history, so forgive the hyperbole.

In the right corner, from Topeka, Kansas, the cult that gives cults a bad name. Ladies and gentlemen, the most hated group in America, the Westboro Baptist Church!

To the left, from New York City, accompanied by their mascot, Teddy Mercury, they are the punk rockers cursed to walk the Earth as zombies whenever their music is played. Ladies and Gentlemen, Toe Tag Riot!

Y&P Rocks: ZO2 Releases New Video and Plays Benefit.

With Thanksgiving and the season of giving on the horizon, I wanted to spotlight a couple of causes I think are important.

The first is the “Katie Welling Memorial Run.” A two and a half mile run in honor of my friend that raises money for the Bronxville School Foundation.  Click here for information on how to sign up or make a donation.

The second is “Leadership Initiatives” an NGO my friend created that empowers communities to “address their own needs through education, business development, and local micro-financing that is invested by the community’s middle-class” with recommendations USAID, the State Department, and the Embassy of Nigeria.  They have been invited to take part in Chase Bank’s annual Community Giving and with your support can receive a grant of $25,00. Please vote for them here.

Thank you very much for any contribution you can make to these causes.
