This year’s Comic for Tots drive as been more successful than I could have ever imagined. I am indebted to both the generosity of the people who have made donations, and especially to some of my artist friends who have contributed signatures, commissions and sketches: Stjepan Sejic, Brett Booth, Dan Jurgens, Lee Moder, Matthew Dow Smith and Richard Clark. The response has been amazing. So far, more than $1,800 has been raised and used to purchase toys and books donated to Toys for Tots.

The final “unique” item for this year will be auctioned via my Twitter feed, which is @ronmarz, on Monday, Dec. 17. My friends Jim Starlin, Joe Staton and Darryl Banks have sketched inside a “Green Lantern: Fear Itself” hardcover, which I will also sign (and personalize, if you like). Jim drew Hal Jordan, Joe drew Guy Gardner, and Darryl drew Kyle Rayner. (Click on the image for a hires version.)

Bidding with start at $200, and continue to 9 p.m. Eastern on Monday. Just tweet me your bid, and I’ll update throughout the day on my feed. Obviously, the goal is to raise as much money as possible, so I hope we can find at least one very generous Green Lantern fan. High bid at 9 p.m. Eastern wins the book (postage is included). Paypal is preferred, but other payment methods can be worked out.

All the other signed items mentioned in the previous post are still available, with the exception of the sketched/signed Shinku TPBs, and the GL #49 issues. Again, thank you all for your generosity.

Cheers,

Ron
