An entry from my Marvel blog of the ‘Aughts, featuring a post concerning Matt Fraction making an appearance at a local school comic book club that we had sent stuff to. Sadly, I can no longer lay hands on the photos that ran with the original piece, so you’ll have to make do with this image from Matt’s appearance on Seth Meyers instead.
Here’s a follow up I just received from our favorite inner city school teacher, John Wilinski, whose earlier letter I posted some time ago:
We just had our second (and last ) meeting of the year for the comic book club. Matt Fraction was kind enough to stop by and answer some of the kids’ questions (most of which had to do with who could beat the Hulk in a fight). He handed out a big stack of comics to the kids and stuck around to sign them too. We all had a really great time.
I have attached a couple of pictures. One is a group shot, the other is Matt signing a copy of Invincible Iron Man for a young lady named Yasmin. Yasmin has read all of the trades you sent us except for one. It has been really impressive the way she just devoured those books.
I am really pleased with how well the comic book club has worked out. I am definitely going to do it again next year; although I will start earlier. Thanks again for all of your support.
