Comics creators launch Art for Sandy Relief

By
Comics creators have launched Art for Sandy Relief.

The organisation will raise money to help victims of the storm that ravaged the East Coast by auctioning some original artwork by top artists.

Art For Sandy Relief
'Fear Agent' #28


Five auctions are currently running including page 19 from Amazing Spider-Man #577 by Paolo Rivera and Fear Agent #28 page 22 by Tony Moore and Mike Hawthorne (as donated by Zack Rosenberg).

A picture of Doctor Doom by Turf artist Tommy Lee Edwards has also been donated by Pat Loika.

Art for Sandy Relief was set up by Marvel Comics marketer James Viscardi and his former colleague Rich Gitner, who now works for Disney in California.

"Before my relocation to Los Angeles two months ago I lived in Staten Island, New York," Gitner told Robot 6.

"I was born in Brooklyn, and my parents moved us to Staten Island at an early age. I called Staten Island my home. During the week with worrying about my family and not being back home to help just ate away at me all week. Also watching what has become of the New Jersey Shore, where I spent many summers, just hit a nerve.

"I think one part of being a New Yorker is, while we may be hard-headed, we definitely have heart and love our city. I can't be there in person to physically help friends and others pick up pieces of their lives, so why not try to help raise money so they can build new lives!"
