Get rid of your shelf porn!

Zito's great giveaway

Zito's great giveaway

Zuda cartoonists Johnny Zito and Tony Trov emailed me yesterday to let me (and presumably, everyone else) know that they recently donated their entire comic book collections to RiF, better known as Reading is Fundamental. “That’s how committed to the digital revolution we are,” Zito wrote.

Zito added that the roughly 10,000 comics they donated to the organization’s after school programs around the country.  “This promotes literacy and hopefully expands the comic book reading audience to a new generation,” he said.

The really good news is that RiF will be accepting donations for the rest of the school year and possibly onward as Zito and Trov look to make this a permanent operation. In the meantime, interested parties can send their comic book donations to:

Beth Pettit
RiF Comic Book Donation Drive
St. Aloysius Education Clinic
219 West 132nd Street
New York, NY 10027

So if you got an underread (and age-appropriate) graphic novel gathering dust on your shelves, now you know where to send it to.

Don’t give me this “committed to the digital revolution” garbage. Mom/GF/wife told them to clear up their crap.

I’m looking to donate my POG collection too. Any takers?

I usually donate my old comics and TPBs to the local library, but RiF is a great program. I might send some books their way.

Nice one agent_torpor, that’s probably true. Anyway, is a good cause, so kudos for them.

Peace.

You can also give away stuff to kids for Halloween. This always works in my neighborhood. Word has spread and now I have tons of kids drop by every year. Here you go kids, copies of the late 90′s Challengers of the Unknown and Teen Titans led by The Atom for you!

I love RiF — I loved it when I was in school (for me it was basically a matter of “I get a free book? Really?” I didn’t need encouragement to read).

I’ll look through my graphic novels, but I don’t think there’s any kids’ comics in particular I want to get rid of.
