This is a release from retailer and friend of Dylan Williams, Jason Leivian, owner of Floating World Comics in Portland, OR:
"Dylan Williams would never ask any of his friends to do a benefit like this. Not his style.
Sorry Dylan, I know you said no gifts, but your friends love you too much and you're just going to have to accept this present.
A few days ago Tom Spurgeon and others sent out a call for people to support Dylan by buying Sparkplug Comic Books. When I heard how serious the situation was I felt shock and sadness. Felt a little helpless, then I think yesterday we all got the same idea at the same time. Gotta do something to help our friend. Jim Rugg emailed me last night about putting together an art fundraiser show which I'll start organizing this weekend and I'll have more info on Monday.
In the meantime we're going to have a benefit sale at Floating World next Monday and Tuesday, August 29th - 30th.
We're going to donate 100% of our proceeds from those two days to Dylan's medical care (Dylan has no health insurance). We'll have a special section of Sparkplug books for you to check out but the sale includes everything you buy on Monday and Tuesday. "
