Sam Glanzman GOFUNDME page.
JULY 10, 2017: Comic book artist Sam Glanzman is currently in hospice care following a series of medical situations. The 92 year old artist has had a very long career in comics, starting in 1939, but he is best known for work from the 1950s on through the 2016 compilation of his USS Stevens biographical stories (mostly 4-pagers) used as backup features in DC Comics war books during the 1960s and 1970s (the volume is titled U.S.S. Stevens: The Collected Stories). Glanzman also has a highly regarded "graphic novel" autobiography detailing his World War II experiences which was originally published by Marvel as "A Sailor's Story" and recently reissued by Dover - amazon link: A Sailor's Story

Wonder Woman at $745,573,296 Worldwide
July 11, 2017: It's starting to look inevitable that Wonder Woman will lunge past the $800 million mark and will beat Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 for the early summer superhero sweepstakes (what Spider-Man: Homecoming does in the long run remains to be seen).
At this rate Patty Jenkin's film is pushing into a small club of DC / Warners' super-success where only Nolan's last two Batman films reside, and, if adjusted for inflation, the first Burton Batman and Christopher Reeves' 1978 Superman.
