Charity Auction featuring Darwyn Cooke, Cliff Chiang, and Ivan Brandon!

iFanboy is very excited to announce to you, our loyal readers, the opportunity to not only help raise some money for a good cause but to also get some great comics related art and items at the same time! Darwyn Cooke, Cliff Chiang, Ivan Brandon and several other comics superstars are teaming up to raise some money for a friend to cover some medical bills incurred last year. After the much needed money is raised, all additional proceeds from the fund raising will be donated to the HERO Initiative, an organization dedicated to supporting comics professionals in need (and iFanboy heartily endorses the HERO Initiative).

The first item up for charity auction is the awesome RETROACTIVE art book by Darwyn Cooke. But not only is the art book being auctioned off, the lucky winner will receive a sketch from Darwyn Cooke of the character of their choice, inside the book. That’s pretty damn cool. You can bid on the auction over at eBay.

Be on the lookout for more auctions from Cooke, Cliff Chiang, Ivan Brandon and more comics professionals. It’s all for a good cause, so if you have some money to spare, get in on the action!  There wil be more auctions rolling out over the next couple of weeks, so keep your eye out!

UPDATE – 2/16! Are you going to MegaCon in Orlando? If so, start bidding on a ADAM HUGHES sketch!


  1. This looks totally awesome. I’ll be taking a look.

  2. The Retroactive book is filled with gorgeous images.  And a commissioned sketch too?  Damn cool.  

  3. Thanks for the tip!

  4. Man, that looks gorgeous.  Sadly, I can’t bid.  Yo no tengo dinero. 🙁

  5. That is beautiful! Sadly, as with most of these kinds of things, they get quickly bid out of my price range. What I would love to see would be an artist superstar do some tiny/quick sketches at a cheap price like $10.00 for us "common folk" to bid on or buy. If Cooke did 100 of these quickies at ten bucks a pop, that’s a nice $1000. Maybe more money would be raised? But…even if i can’t financially win this auction, I will pray for this friend and his medical needs! 

  6. @target242: That’s a great idea. I don’t know how long it takes to do a sketch (probably longer that I think it does) but I’d be happy to wait and then bid on them. I was out of this auction very quickly. Congrats to Cooke for being so damn popular and raising so much money though.

  7. i wish i could…

  8. Wow, why must you temp me ifanboy with things I can never achieve?!

  9. If you COULD get this, who would you want your sketch to be of…?  I choose Captain America.  I just can’t decide for Bucky Cap or O.G. Cap.

  10. $305 dollars? Holy shit!
