The SPX is chartered to benefit the CBLDF and also has one of our
most exciting auctions of the year. This year’s auction includes
many great items including the very first page of original art from
Craig Thompson’s Blankets to ever be released to the art market!
Other original art and sketches in the auction is from Art
Spiegelman, Carla Speed McNeil, Steve Lieber, Mike Mignola, and
Colleen Coover. Auction items will be on display Saturday morning
and the auction will occur Saturday afternoon.

Other CBLDF events include signings by Mike Mignola, Jeff Smith, &
Eric Powell. Mignola will also be doing four commissioned sketches
during the show to benefit the Fund. The commissions will be
auctioned off twice a day on Friday and Saturday.
