Darwyn Cooke's 12 Days of Christmas

12 auctions over twelve days to support the Hero Initiative

Hi everyone. If you're anything like Marsha and me, this is a busy, happy time of year. I've been taking it easy for the last month or so, and as we ramp up for the holidays, I thought it might be nice to do something for the folks who need a little hand up.

Starting tomorrow on Ebay, we'll begin the first of twelve auctions of various pieces of art, with all proceeds going to The Hero Initiative, a wonderful organization that assists comic creators that are going through hard times. Hero is a wonderful organization, and I urge you to check out their website http://www.heroinitiative.org/ for more info.

The auctions will appear once a day with the final few being single day auctions, so we can be sure to get everything shipped out before Christmas.

Tomorrow we'll start off with a page from The Outfit, and the following days will see some strange and rare pieces, ranging from cheap and cheerful to key pages from some of my favorite projects. I'll post a link to the first auction once it goes up.

If you've ever thought about buying a piece of mine, this would be a great time to do it.

We'll be updating here as we go, so stay tuned and let's all be Heroes this Christmas

I've been totally unable to find this on EBay...it's not on the Hero Initiative's Ebay page and doesn't show up under Darwyn Cooke searches...
