Beginning at 3:00 PM EST on Friday, May 4, and continuing through Sunday, May 6, legendary Marvel artist John Romita Jr. will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for Most Signatures in a 48 hour period with all proceeds going to the Heroes for Jordan charity, benefitting research for his niece, Jordan Alyssa Atherton, and other children suffering from cancer.

Romita set the same record previously in 2002 to raise money for Jordan's initial treatment. Now, a decade later, he will team with Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation of Nevada and Marvel Comics to top his previous efforts and raise money for this important cause.

The event will take place at the Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas, but if you can't be there live, you can follow along below with the live streaming video.

John Romita is a Hack. His work is amateurish at best. Real crap.
