Mission Statement

The Hero Initiative, formerly known as A Commitment To Our Roots (ACTOR) Comic Fund, is a non profit organization dedicated to helping comic book creators with emergency medical aid, financial support for life essentials, and an avenue back into employment.

Description

The Hero Initiative exists because many Golden Age or Silver Age comic book creators toiled in comics' earlier years for low pay and with a nonexistent pension plan. Very often, writers would work for a penny a word, or artists for $5 a page with no chance of ownership or pension. Many of these people who laid the groundwork that today's comic industry is based on may be in financial need. Be it due to age, health, low salaries, or with no retirement plan, these individuals need assistance. The Hero Initiative provides a safety net for former comic creators in need.
