Moulton and Naylor are teaming up with artist Emily Drouin to raise money for the nonprofit Hear in New Hampshire and to raise awareness for the hearing-impaired.
"It's great for him. Superhero identity is definitely his thing," she said. "If people ask him if he's Blue Ear, he says, 'Yes, I am.' It's part of his identify in a positive way."
"He's a rock star. He's doing brilliant and amazing things," said D'Allesandro.
She said Linda French, director of Hear in New Hampshire, was the first professional who addressed Anthony's hearing loss.
When Moulton and Naylor heard about Anthony and the Marvel character, they felt Village Comics had to play a role. The comic book store, located above Fireplace Village, recently opened, and the business partners said hosting a fundraiser is a way to get involved in the community.
"A lot of characters are based on disabilities or differences. Daredevil is blind, and Iron Man has a heart condition," he said.
"J is my resident comics expert. It's a good mix of our love for comics and the business aspect," Naylor said. "We complement each other."
"It's the hope and dream of every kid to work in or own a comic store. It was always my dream," Moulton said.
