And The Hits Just Keep On Coming!

Hero Initiative is a charity that helps out comic book creators from the Golden and Silver Ages who, because of those contracts, got paid shit and have no health benefits. Hero Initiative helps pay medical bills, hospital bills, and so on.

HI has an auction up on eBay. A very funny auction up on eBay.

Here's what it is. It's a Rob Granito hockey jersey. Nope, that's not the funny part.

The jersey is sketched on and signed by eight different comic creators. Nope, that's not the funny part.

Each sketch is signed for them by another artist Rob Granito-style. Now THAT'S funny!

Here's the item in question:

Scarlet Witch by Khoi Pham (signed by Chris Sprouse)
Hulk by Ethan van Sciver (signed by Khoi Pham)
Wonder Woman by Agnes Garbowska (signed by Leonard Kirk)
Evil Ernie by Dale Keown (signed by Richard Pace)
Spider-Man by Ty Templeton (signed by Agnes Garbowska
Sandman by Richard Pace (signed by Ty Templeton)
Gorilla-Man by Leonard Kirk (signed by Ethan van Sciver)
Tom Strong by Chris Sprouse (signed by Dale Keown)
…and a hearty "Sit the @#?!!@ down!" by Ethan van Sciver (this one properly attributed!)

As I write this, there is almost seven days left on the auction, 13 bids so far, $212.50. All money goes to HI.

Come know you want this....
