As reported last week, Len Wein and and his wife Christine Valada’s home caught fire last week, killing their dog Sheba and destroying much of the house, including Wein’s collection of original art and his own work.

Comics writer Mark Evanier is putting together plans to help Wein replace a lot of those comics:

To all those who’ve asked: We’re preparing our little campaign to help our pal Len Wein, who lost much of what he owns in a fire one week ago. In a day or three, I’ll be opening a web page to try and collect copies of Len’s work for him…extra copies you may have of comics he wrote. A lot of you have already written with generous offers and they’re appreciated. The page will tell you how to follow through on those offers.

We’ll link to the page here once it is live. In addition, Valada has been writing about the fire on her own blog; she’s shared ten things she’s learned from the fire here and here.

Glad to hear this is getting put together. I’m looking forward to supporting whatever to help Len and family out.
