My friend and longtime colorist for TwoMorrows has been hospitalized the last few weeks for acute kidney failure. As a freelancer, he’s going to be faced with some tough financial difficulties when he gets out of the hospital, and Alan Kupperberg is spearheading a fundraising effort to help Tom out.
Whether you’ve enjoyed Tom’s stellar color work on all the Marvel and DC books he’s colored since the 1970s, or on the bulk of TwoMorrows’ own output since 1994, I hope you’ll consider ANY kind of donation. As Alan Kupperberg said on his Facebook page, if everyone reading this donated even $1 apiece, it’d be a huge help.
Please do what you can. I’ve known Tom for over 15 years now, and I can vouch for the fact that he’s one of the most generous, talented guys in comics. Let’s all give a little back to a great guy!

And below is Alan’s original appeal on Tom’s behalf.
A URGENT APPEAL FOR A FELLOW FREELANCER IN TROUBLE.
Tom Ziuko, good guy, great friend and color artist supreme needs our help! Tom is about to go into his fourth week of hospitalization in Niagara Falls. Tom spent the entire holiday season fighting acute kidney failure and several unrelated but severely painful conditions. The good n…ews is that the doctors seem to have finally stumbled on a series of treatments and therapies that have Tom seeing some light at the end of the tunnel. The bad news is that Tom, uninsured and unable to work since the beginning of December, is in a tough financial bind.
Can you help? If all of my Friends on FB were to contribute even one dollar apiece it would be a tremendous boon to Tom. If you want to do a good deed and are able, Tom and I would be so grateful. You can send any contributions to my PayPal account (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will pass 100% (plus) along to Tom.
Tom’s cable service has been shut down but he has internet access in the hospital. If you wish to contact him, his address is: Atomica999@aol.com
Thanks so much to all those who can and will help.
