Athens cartoonists create anthology to benefit Patrick Dean

A new issue of ‘Bezoar’ will benefit the cartoonist, who was diagnosed with ALS earlier this year.

Bezoar is a minicomics anthology put together by a group of Athens, Georgia-based comic creators with a monster theme. With two issues under their belt, the crew decided to use the third issue to help raise money for cartoonist Patrick Dean, who was diagnosed with ALS, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, in June.

Joey Weiser explains on Tumblr:

As Patrick’s friends and fellow cartoonists, the Bezoar crew decided that we wanted to help out in any way we could. We decided it was time to put together a new issue of Bezoar, extend the net of creators further to include other friends & colleagues of Patrick’s, and use whatever funds come from it for his benefit! All money from sales of Bezoar 3 will go to Patrick and his family to assist with medical bills, quality of life, and just as a way to let them know we care.
