Official Press Release
After three weeks, the Comics Help auction has uploaded its final items. To round out the charity auction on eBay (all proceeds go to the Red Cross), Oni Press has put five separate lots of items on the block donated by Brian Michael Bendis & Michael Avon Oeming.
These items are:
(1) A complete set of Bendis' crime graphic novels-JINX, AKA GOLDFISH, TORSO, and FIRE-signed by the author
(2) The out-of-print original edition of the POWERS: WHO KILLED RETROGIRL? tradepaperback and two different editions of the POWERS: WIZARD ½, all signed by Bendis.
(3) A double-page spread of original artwork by Oeming, from POWERS #11
(4) Two minicomics: the OEMING SKETCHBOOK and BUTT PUPPY SHOW #1 by Oeming and Neil Vokes
(5) A TORSO lot featuring the very rare, out of print hardcover graphic novel, and the TORSO screenplay, both co-written by Brian Bendis and Marc Andreyko. This screenplay is not commercially available.
