When artist DON PERLIN recently had surgery to stop bleeding in his head, I contacted him after the operation to see how I could help. He indicated that he was fine. But he wasn't. They discovered more bleeding and today, as Don described it, they removed a piece of his skull the size of a creditcard and then put in a Titanium plate. He's stuck in rehab now which his Medicare and insurance do not fully cover. So let's help this man.

Spoke with Don & his wife briefly this a.m. There's still some medical tests ahead but we're hopeful. At best, this is a miserable experience--frightening and debilitating... I've upped the "ask" when I realized that GoFundMe/PayPal takes 5% (less than what our industry's professional fundraisers take, though) and there will likely be unexpected expenses once Don comes home... All funds will go directly to Don.

I just hung up with Don's daughter Elaine in NY who will remain my contact with the family until I can speak with Don's son whois with Don in Florida… I also spoke with a Board Member of the HERO Initiative and will reach out to Marvel tomorrow to see if they'd like to help. Thanks everyone for contributing and sharing this message.

Don Perlin is my father. He's not the kind of guy to get all mushy and tell everyone here just how touching and helpful all of this is, so I will try. It's incredible to know that so many people have been touched by Don's artistry and his humanity. Your outpouring of concern and support is astonishing and valuable beyond what you can imagine. Everyone in our family is grateful.

Out of respect and admiration for Don, from now until the end of the year I will mail an original drawing of any character Don Perlin ever drew to anyone contributing $50 or more to his GOFUNDME drive. Your cost will just be $50 plus the cost of my mailing the artwork to you which, I estimate will be about $4. PM me with your name and address and which character you'd like me to draw. Please share this post if you think any of your fb friends would be interested. Let's help Don, he'd do it for you, and, after all, think of all the enjoyment he gave us! Offer not valid if your name is Bart Hill.

Thanks much, Larry. I must admit I wasn’t a huge fan of your dad’s work on the Defenders, but hey, he was there all the way to bring the title forward, and with all the possible care and love, so that’s what’s important. A serene Christmas time to you all and may Don have a good recovery. I will pray for you!
