Original art is a growing market for creators and fans alike, and for the holidays artist Vasilis Lolos is selling choice pages of his work for a good cause. The Last Call cartoonist is auctioning off pages from his work at Marvel, Image and Dark Horse, as well as his self-published projects, with all proceeds to benefit stray dogs in Athens, Greece.
"During this time of winter and the constant bombings and riots, these stray dogs need a helping hand," Lolos says. "This is why I created these auctions, so I can sell my artwork really cheap but help somebody in need."

Lolos has also posted a seven-page section of his contribution to the Eisner-winning anthology 5. Here's a look at those pages:
