Comic Art Auction To Benefit Philippine Typhoon Victims

This just came in from artist Greg LaRocque:

This last month typhoon Ketsana and super typhoon Parma slammed into the Philippines. Flooding hit Metro Manila killing hundreds and displacing thousands of families. Untold millions of property damage has left the city reeling. Rains have continued and not only hampered rescue efforts but caused more misery and death as mud slides have taken out entire towns. Death count now is estimated to be over 500 as rescue efforts continue and those living in emergency evacuation centers over 300,000.

Comic book artist Greg LaRocque and his family are seeking your help. With the assistance of fellow comic artists, friends and fans, they have begun this fund raising effort. Original art pages, prints and sketches were collected at this years Baltimore Comicon and are available here for you to bid on. The comic book community has come together at this time of need and hope you will participate in this auction. You will find some fantastic pieces by some of the most well known stars in comics today as well as some very talented artists just beginning their careers.

All proceeds will go to the Philippine Red Cross and be put to good use helping those in a very dire situation.

The art is set up for auction on ebay for the next 10 days. Links will be added when auction begins. Please help and thank you for your generosity in advance.

If you wish to make a monetary donation you can donate through PayPal, or send a check or money order to;

Thank You & God Bless!, Greg LaRocque.

Now scoot on over to Greg's eBay auctions and get a deal. There's art there by George Perez, Alex Saviuk, Brian Stelfreeze, Matt Wagner, Barry Kitson and many more. Plus Greg himself is auctioning off art and is offering open commissions for a mere $100 - how good does that get? I tell you right now - I'll be putting myself on Greg's commission list by the end of next week!
