Stephen Amell may not be a real-life superhero, but he’s certainly heroic, even without powers. The 35-year-old star of CW’s “Arrow” announced the start of his 3rd annual F*ck Cancer campaign this morning on various social media platforms. The candidly named charity event brings the sale of tops and hoodies in multiple styles and sizes in support of education on cancer.
“Hello friends,” a note from Amell reads on the sales page, “It’s time once again to represent a cause that has turned into something bigger than any of us could have imagined. Get a shirt! Get a hoodie! Finally… F*ck Cancer.”
In addition to posting the campaign’s official page, Amell took to one of his favorite means of communication with his devoted fanbase — Facebook Live. After shooting long past midnight on “Arrow”, Amell posted a video announcing the Campaign’s return.
100% of the proceeds for the shirt sales go to F*ck Cancer — a nonprofit started by Huntington Beach native Brandon McGuinness, who lost his battle to Hodgekin’s Lymphoma in 2007. He was 27 years old. F*ck Cancer helps in education on early cancer detection and helping victims and their families. “Together, we FIGHT”https://represent.com/…/stephen-amell-3rd-annual-fuck-cance…
R.I.P. Leonard Cohen
R.I.P. Leonard Cohen
Leonard Cohen, the hugely influential singer and songwriter whose work spanned nearly 50 years, died at the age of 82. Cohen's label, Sony Music Canada, confirmed his death on the singer's Facebook page.
"It is with profound sorrow we report that legendary poet, songwriter and artist, Leonard Cohen has passed away," the statement read. "We have lost one of music's most revered and prolific visionaries. A memorial will take place in Los Angeles at a later date. The family requests privacy during their time of grief." A cause of death and exact date of death was not given.
My father passed away peacefully at his home in Los Angeles with the knowledge that he had completed what he felt was one of his greatest records," Cohen's son Adam wrote in a statement to Rolling Stone
. "He was writing up until his last moments with his unique brand of humor."
R.I.P. Steve Dillon
Veteran comic book artist Steve Dillon, celebrated for his work on “Preacher,” “The Punisher” and “Hellblazer,” has passed away at age 54.
Born in 1962 in Luton, Bedfordshire, England, Dillon made his professional debut at age 16 in the Marvel UK anthology “Hulk Weekly,” and went on to draw the Nick Fury strip. He later worked on “Doctor Who Magazine,” where he created the character Abslom Daak, and the “Warrior” anthology, and contributed regularly throughout the 1980s to 2000AD, illustrating such strips as “Judge Dredd,” “Rogue Trooper” and “Bad Company.” With the late artist Brett Ewins, Dillon also launched the magazine “Deadline.”
Dillon first attracted attention in the United States with the 1989 DC Comics miniseries “Skreemer,” with Peter Milligan and Ewins, before moving on to a nearly two-year run on “Animal Man.”
However, Dillon is best known for his collaborations with writer Garth Ennis, beginning with Vertigo’s “Hellblazer” and continuing with the critically acclaimed “Preacher” and Marvel’s “The Punisher.” Dillon’s other credits include Marvel’s “Wolverine: Origins,” “Bullseye: Greatest Hits,” “PunisherMAX” and “Thunderbolts.”
Tributes to Dillon have filled Twitter this morning, with Warren Ellis calling him “a giant,” Antony Johnston referring to him as “one of the best pure storytellers in the business,” and Ed Brubaker characterizing his death as “a tragic loss, not just to comics, but especially to comics.”
