Update: As of today (September 21st, 5:00 PM EST), the auctions have now closed. Thank you to everyone who bid, and we hope you enjoy your art!
In July as a lead-in for the then-upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film, we at Multiversity held something called Guardians Month. In it, we curated a series of Guardians and Rocket Raccoon-themed art pieces by some of comics’ best that were to be then auctioned, with all of the proceeds going towards the support of Bill Mantlo, co-creator of Rocket Raccoon. For those unaware, in 1992 Bill Mantlo suffered injuries when he was struck in a hit-and-run car accident while rollerblading, and it left him in need of constant care due to a brain injury suffered in the accident. You can read more about Bill’s condition and Guardians month in our introduction post, and you can read more about what you can do to help Bill right here.
However, today we are now very proud and pleased to announce that the auctions for the Bill Mantlo Support Fund have now gone live! Over 30 pieces of original art are now currently available to bid upon on eBay (with more on the way!), and we welcome and encourage all of you to take a look, bid on what you like and share the link with everyone you know.
You can find all the pieces currently available by clicking here, or follow the individual links below. We will update this list as more go live, but please note the pieces that are being auctioned are not colored (except in a few cases), so take a look:
Good luck with your bids, and thank you in advance for supporting a great cause!
