David Pirkola Charity Auction

iFanboy is pleased to announce we’re beginning a series of auctions via eBay to help benefit David Pirkola, a Michigan based comics retailer who was shot and wounded in April, 2008 during a robbery at his store. 

We will be announcing a series of auctions of comics related merchandise from publishers such as BOOM! Studios, Oni Press, Image Comics and many other comics publishers and creators.  We will be featuring these auctions on this page, so keep checking as new items are added.

All proceeds from the charity auction will go directly to David Pirkola to assist with medical bills, help support his store Apparitions Comics and Books or whatever other needs he and his family deem fit.
