Get rid of your shelf porn!

by  in Comic News Comment

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.
