Richard Moore's Life Mirrors His Comic Book


Boneyard 7

In sad news, we have found out that creator Richard Moore is in need of help. Mirroring the second arc of his series Boneyard, Moore has hit some financial hardships. Over at Richard Moore Fans discussion forum, this was posted.

"Richard just found out that he's being evicted in 30 days.
So he's scrambling to come up with cash for the
move. I'll get the PayPal info for anyone in the group who
wants a sketchbook. In the meantime,
he's selling most of his past covers; anyone
interested should post here which cover
they're interested in, and make an offer. He might try Ebay,
but he thought of giving us a first crack at it here in the group.

So Help Richard everybody!"

Here is the information on where to provide the help.

"He's get back to me with more info on which covers, prices, etc. (and
yes, the football cover is available), but for right now, as for the
sketchbooks:

the PayPal account is right here.

Both sketchbooks are still available, $10 for one or $15 for both.
Free sketches in them, no extra charge.

But I'll be off-line for the next three days in South Dakota.
I'll be back on Sunday, with more info on covers and how to complete
the sketchbook thingy."

I know this may sound cliche' but please help if you can. Moore's book Boneyard has brought a lot of joy to my household. We want to support him any way we can. Spread the word, and help if you can.

I love Boneyard, but I haven't seen it in so long I thought it wasn't being published anymore. I'm going to have to go yell at my comic chop for not keeping up with it.

I rarely read The Beat..but did you see the post "Marvel Zombies"?

Heidi Meeley said...

John, definitely tell your retailer to track Boneyard down. It is on a quarterly schedule, and is published through NBM.

Take care!

Redlib- I just saw it now. Thank you for pointing it out, otherwise I may have missed it.

I am going to assume this wasn't a negative post about me... it was more about pointing out some things.

Thank you again for telling me!

I followed the link and the other Heidi definitely didn't understand how at least *I feel* about Civil War #5. I will forgive Marvel for the crap they have put us through *IF* they turn The Punisher *LOOSE* and have him start the end game to the finale. I want these people *PUNISHED* and hard. And depending on how it reads and if it sucks and they cop or pull some bullsh*t, I will not reward more crap with my money. End of story...
Oh and not to ignore the Moore/Boneyard story, please keep us up on it, I got like $7 bucks to my name after Screamfest and amazed to have that much...

Carl, it was interesting that the whole thing got picked up at all. I saw your comment, and you said it like it is, which I really appreciate.

Thank you for everything!
