Comics Industry Helps Sandy Victims
The effects of Hurricane Sandy are still being felt by many, and multiple efforts are being made within the comic book industry to help those in need.
Rich Ginter, a former Marvel employee who currently works as a designer for Disney in Glendale, Calif., has organized “Art for Sandy Relief,” an online auction of original comic book art and commissioned sketches to raise money for the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, a New York City-based charitable organization.
Currently, Art for Sandy Relief has five auctions listed (including an Amazing Spider-Man page donated by Paolo Rivera), which can be seen here.
If buying original art isn’t your thing and you still want to help, you can also donate, via Paypal.
Artist J.K. Woodward, of Fallen Angel and IDW’s Star Trek: The Next Generation/Doctor Who crossover, has been especially affected by Hurricane Sandy — in his own words, “Our home was lost along with almost everything we own.” He’s selling pages from his comic book work here, plus prints of past commissions to help him and his wife get back on their feet.
