'Heroes for Hope' was a project Marvel did in 1985 with various artists and writers to spread awareness concerning the famine in Ethiopia (with all proceeds from the comic donated to relief). In addition to illustrating a segment written by none other than Stephen King, it was Bernie Wrightson who came up with the idea for the project and suggested it to Jim Shooter.

Warning for some graphic imagery.







If you want to know how the rest of the story goes Wikipedia has a lengthy write-up here.

This issue always creeped me out so much. Didn't know it was by multiple people, let alone Stephen King... interesting.

This was the first comic I owned! I had no idea who anybody was or what was going on, but the individual stories were entirely compelling then and they still are now.
