On the 21st of April 2012, some members from the Wicked Comics Team, the organisers of the annual Malta Comic Con, met with the Ursuline Sisters at their orphanage in Sliema and a sum of 900 Euros was presented to them. The money was collected from the auction sale held on ebay of the painting done by the Italian painter Lucio Parrillo. Lucio executed a painting depicting Hulk”s transformation during our weekend event and this painting was put up for auction and the proceeds from the sale went to a charity organization. More information about this original painting can be found on this article – http://www.maltacomic-con.com/?article&id=138
Wicked Comics would like to thank Lucio Parrillo who accepted without hesitation to donate his artwork for a Maltese Charity. After the deduction of a 100 Euros from the sale price that covered Paypal and ebay charges together with material and courier service for postage, all the rest was donated to the Ursuline Sisters and neither the artist nor Wicked Comics took any money. Wicked Comics believes in giving something back to society and since Hulk is a very popular figure amongst children, donating the money to an organization that looks after the welfare of children seemed to be the right thing to do.
