Donate to Japan, Get a Free Comic

Writer Greg Pak is giving away free copies of his graphic novel Vision Machine to anyone who donates a minimum of $20 to any charity assisting in the Japan tsunami relief effort.

He writes in his newsletter: The latest reports from Japan estimate 25,000 dead or missing from the earthquakes and tsunami. After thinking over ways to help raise relief money, I’ve come up with what I hope is a simple plan. Here’s how it works:
Donate $20 to any charity doing relief work in Japan.

Then send an email with your US mailing address to

In your email, tell me what charity you donated to and confirm that you are 18 or over. (And sorry for limiting it to US mailing addresses — little to complicated for me to mail large numbers of packages overseas right now.) And I’ll send you a free “Vision Machine” trade paperback!

The charity is your choice. $20 minimum donation. If you tell me you donated, I’ll believe you and send you a trade – honor system, folks!

Finally, please include your Twitter handle in your email if you’d like a shout out online!

So far, we’ve raised $707 for Japan relief. I’d love to hit $1000 by the end of Friday. You can follow along at — I’ll post updates as donations come in.

Many thanks for your consideration and generosity!
