Hero Initiative raffles ticket to the Cubs game with Brian Azzarello

images100 Bullets/First Wave scribe and “long-suffering” Cubs fan Brian Azzarello has teamed up with the Hero Initiative to take three fans out to the ball game. Azzarello has season tickets to the Chicago Cubs, who play the New York Mets on Sept. 3.

“Misery loves company, and I’m happy to share this experience with three lucky fans,” said Azzarello. “The Hero Initiative is an important cause, and I’d like to thank the great Chicago comic retailers for making this all happen. Take it from me, the beginning of September is the perfect time to begin waiting for next year. Go Cubs!”

For two bucks, you can buy a raffle ticket at several Chicago comic shops for the chance to win, including Challengers Comics, Chicago Comics, Comix Revolution and Graham Crackers Comics. Tickets will also be available at Hero Initiative’s booth at Wizard World Chicago at the Rosemount Convention Center, Aug. 19-22.



There’s nothing about this I don’t like. Except for the fact that I won’t be in Chicago anytime soon.

Awesome. Azzarello is the fucking king and anything that supports the HERO Initiative is good.

Having said that, I’m kind of surprised by this announcement, for no other reason than Azz always seems a bit irritated by overly eager fanboys at cons. Witness: It’s gonna be a long, awkward afternoon if it goes like that.

Not that I blame Azz, of course. I could never find the patience to give interviews that stupid… I would have quit halfway through.

To be fair, that guy was SUPER obnoxious.
