A quick line about Movember – a global movement aimed at promoting awareness about men’s health issues, the reason why I’ve spent this month growing a mo, and a great opportunity for you to buy a comic and get an exclusive art print by Riley Rossmo for a good cause.
I believe in Movember because men’s health issues are an insidious seething mess. Depression, suicide, an inability to even go to the doc to get your prostate checked out. It’s rampant bullshit, housed in the septic tank of toxic masculinity, and I’m sick of the stench. I don’t want to be caught up in it, and I don’t want it wafting around for future generations.
The beauty of Movember is that it’s a visible cause – you see a mo this month, odds are it’s in support and solidarity of this great cause. We’re raising money for BeyondBlue, and other places, but we’re mostly just raising awareness.
Movember is personal to me – and let’s face it, there are thousands of good charities and causes to support, but we can’t do it all, so why this one? My father was a victim of the silent killer amongst men, and not a day goes by I don’t think about it in some respect, and it’s been 30 years. I wish Movember had existed back then, I wish men allowed themselves to talk more freely about their feelings back then.
I grow the mo for my dad, and also for my kids.

Or, maybe you want some sweet comics in support of a grand cause?
Right now, you can buy ETERNAL, my ogn with Eric Zawadzki and Dee Cunniffe from Black Mask Studios, on ownaindi.com and an exclusive Movember Viking print with art by superstar Riley Rossmo for just $30, with a portion of proceeds going to the Movember Foundation.
And if you buy anything else from me at any stage for the rest of Movember, I’ll be sharing money with Movember from all sales – so help yourself to some script downloads, or the BEAUTIFUL CANVAS issues, all for a good cause!
But, if you just want to spread the word about this great cause, maybe talk to the men in your life and see what’s up, then I’d be just as appreciative. I’m growing a mo to save a bro, and we should all let our love show.
