Matt Fraction has announced he'll join Steve Niles and Tim Daniels at Aurora Rise, the Aug. 25-26 benefit organized by All C's Collectibles in Aurora, Colorado, to raise money for the victims of the July 20 theater shootings.
Dark Horse and Image Comics have donated items for the event, which will include creator appearances and signings, a silent auction, artist sketches and giveaways. All C's Collectibles is the only comics store in Aurora.
"The mission of Aurora Rise is simple - we are going to do everything in our power to assist and aid the victims and victim’s families," store manager Jason Farnsworth wrote on the event's Facebook page. All proceeds will go directly to the victims, their families or designated charities.
