There are numerous watchgroups and fans who are demonstrating support in multiple different ways.

    Comics Allience did their own drive to support Mike Meyer in his hour of loss.

    His collection of 1800 comics was restored thanks to the efforts of Reddit, 4chan, Facebook, Get Satisfaction and hundreds of other blogs that spread the word.

    But as an even happier ending note, then, police finally caught a lucky break and caught the thief.
    Gerry A. Armbruster, 37, of the 2200 block of Iowa Street in Granite City
    was arrested when committing a similar crime, this time pertaining jewels.
