Marvel Teams up with Extreme Home Makeover – Home Edition

Hey check out this Sunday’s (5/15/11) episode of ABC’s Extreme Home Makeover Home Edition for a pretty cool episode with a strong comic book connection.

Meet Patrick Sharrock, a young boy with a rare disability that he overcomes daily with a super heroic mix of humor, perseverance, and a positive attitude.

Marvel Entertainment and Earth’s Mightiest Designers—Ty Pennington, Xzibit, Ed Sanders, Eduardo Xol, and Leigh Anne Tuohy—pay homage to the hero in Patrick as his new home school classroom is designed around his very own super hero alter ego! Plus, don’t miss all new art from Marvel artist Todd Nauck illustrating the design team’s heroic journey to help a family who inspires us all.

“With his shining heart and unbreakable spirit, Patrick is an inspiration to all of us here at Marvel,” said Marvel editor Bill Rosemann. “It was an honor for everyone involved to do our small part to help bring his dreams to life. Captain America, Thor, and the rest of our mighty crime-fighters salute Patrick and the entire Sharrock family, who are our true heroes.”

Brady Connell, Executive Producer,  Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, explained, “From the second we told them about Patrick Sharrock, Marvel Custom Solutions was committed to creating a comic book framework for this unique episode. Their top artists transformed some of our traditional scenes, and made the show feel like a comic book come to life.  Patrick and his father, both comic fans, will love it when they see it!”
