Ken “Value Added” Steacy will be joining us at the Lunar Module Mk. 3 on Monday, November 14th at 6:00pm.

Known around Desert Bus as Ken “Value Added” Steacy thanks to his legacy of creating some of the most exciting live auctions we’ve seen, Ken decided at age eleven to become a professional comic book writer/artist, a dream he realized in 1974. Since then, he has chronicled the exploits of Spider-Man, Harry Potter, and the Star Wars gang, to name but a few. In addition to creating his own intellectual property, he has collaborated with Harlan Ellison, Dean Motter, and Douglas Coupland. The recipient of an Eisner and an Inkpot award, Ken was inducted into the Joe Shuster Awards Hall of Fame in 2009, a lifetime achievement award honouring Canadian comic book creators for their contributions to the industry. Alongside his wonderful wife, graphic novelist Joan Steacy, Ken is currently teaching Comics & Graphic Novels in a program they created at Camosun College here in Victoria.

The Ken “Value Added” Steacy Effect

So, Ken Steacy came in and did his Ken Steacy thing. If you don’t know what that means, well, it goes like this: Ken Steacy, father to LRR stalwart Alex Steacy, is a longtime supporter of Desert Bus For Hope, and each year comes in with a caravan of treasures from his storied career in art and illustration. We auction them all off, and when the dust settles, somehow  that number in the top-left corner of the screen has increased by a cool 40,000 or so.

Yes, that number up there


Huge thanks again to Ken Steacy for helping us once again!

So Ken Steacy came by with a veritable King Solomon’s Mines of his incredible treasures.

His twelve sensational lots brought in a cool


To write that in words, like I do on my rent cheques, that’s

Twenty-five thousand, one hundred twelve dollars

and seventy-eight cents

Not bad for a few hours’ work (plus thousands of hours of a true artisan labouring at his craft etc., etc., blah blah blah).

Thanks Ken, from everyone at Desert Bus for Hope! You’re our hero!
