John Romita Jr may not be a super hero, but he has a big heart and super stamina. The co-creator of Kick Ass and longtime Marvel artist is going to attempt to break his own decade-old Guinness World Record for continual cartooning (there's a record for everything, isn't there? [yes]) to raise money for Heroes For Jordan and Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada.
Heroes For Jordan was set up to secure medical treatment for his twelve year old niece Jordan Alyssa Atherton for the effects of cancer therapy and surgery as a young child. It will also raise money with Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada raises much needed funds to assist other children suffering the effects of cancer.
JR JR's feat will start on Friday, May 4, at the Hard Rock Cafe on the Las Vegas Strip in the Showcase Mall, to coincide with the release of Hit Girl #1, the Avengers movie, and Free Comic Book Day on May the 5th.
