As reported yesterday, the Ice Bucket Challenge fad is hitting comics and it’s spreading like wildfire. The viral fad involves having a bucket of ice dumped over you to create more awareness of ALS — Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis— a “progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord” and can cause total paralysis.
Those taking the challenge posted results to Facebook, which will not allow me to embed the videos because Facebook. But here’s a list of the latest to take the plunge:
Dean Haspiel, who did it sirtless, as I hardly need even mention.
Cryptozoic’s John Nee
Tess Fowler, whose nephew actually suffers from ALS.
Dynamite’s Nick Barrucci
ComicWow!’s Josh Geppi
Have you taken the challenge? Link it up in the comments! And please be careful. We don’t want any William Henry Harrison’s here.
