Hundreds of Comics from the Personal Collection of X-Men Creator Given to Sick Kids

Newark, NJ (PRWEB) February 17, 2010 -- Kars4Kids, the national car-donation program that benefits children, and Newark Beth Israel Children's Hospital in Newark, NJ, will be distributing a generous, unique donation from the estate of Dave Cockrum, co-creator of Marvel Comics' popular X-Men series. The donated comics were part of Cockrum's personal collection.

"My husband loved to help people--he was generous to a fault," said Paty Cockrum, widow of the popular artist and creator who died in 2006 from complications resulting from diabetes. "Dave was extremely happy that the characters he created--such as Storm, Colossus and Nightcrawler--became a part of the childhood memories of millions of children. He knew that was his legacy. Dave was also an avid comic book collector. I'm delighted that kids in need will benefit from his personal collection."

The comics will be given out on February 19 (snow date: February 26) at 10 am to children who are hospitalized. Members of the press are encouraged to attend.

Kars4Kids.org is a national organization providing for the spiritual, emotional and practical needs of children from impoverished or dysfunctional families. The national, 501(c)3, non-profit organization was established in 2000.
