Make Matt Fraction Pay!

…to help pay for Hur­ri­cane Sandy relief.

It’s two weeks over­due, but “Hawk­eye #7″ will hit stores on Wednes­day with a Hur­ri­cane Sandy relief story with pro­ceeds — actu­ally the very roy­al­ties Mar­vel Comics will pay writer Matt Frac­tion — going to charity.

Frac­tion, along with artists Steve Lieber and Jesse Hamm will tell a two-part story about Clint Bar­ton and his pro­tege Kate Bishop’s efforts to help cit­i­zens fol­low­ing a dis­as­trous storm in Brook­lyn and New Jer­sey. As Frac­tion says in the above video, he tried to high­light the real-life brav­ery non-super-powered heroes showed dur­ing the storm by way of his fic­tional non-super-powered Avenger. “So many reg­u­lar peo­ple did so much good, it felt like Hawk­eye is an appro­pri­ate place to do a Sandy story.”

Speak­ing of real-life reg­u­lar peo­ple doing good, Frac­tion has decided to donate his roy­al­ties for script­ing “Hawk­eye” #7 to the Amer­i­can Red Cross. So the more copies that you buy, the more money Matt will donate. It’s an incred­i­bly gen­er­ous ges­ture, one that Frac­tion admits, is risky, but worth it, “…it occured to me that if this is too suc­cess­ful that this could be the most painful check that I ever write…but c’mon, make it hurt!”

Let the hip­ster from Port­landia explain…
