I can't pretend that I know enough about comic books to know who Francis Manapul is, but I trust the guys from Heroes and Villains that he's a big deal, plus the funds from this auction go to a great cause:

He showed us his vision of a better future on LEGION OF SUPERHEROES...

He put the pep in The Scarlet Speedster's step on THE FLASH...

He gave form to The Man of Tomorrow and The Dark Knight on SUPERMAN/BATMAN...

Now he's using his powers to give aid to homeless Tucsonan youth!

Fan-favorite-illustrator Francis Manapul has donated three pieces of original art (seen here: http://tinyurl.com/FrancisManapul) to local comic book shop Heroes and Villains, to be auctioned off on February 28th at 7pm.

100% of the proceeds will be donated to Open Inn, a local charitable organization dedicated to serving Tucson’s homeless youth.

Interested parties are encouraged to visit Heroes and Villains (located at 4533 East Broadway, between Swan and Columbus) anytime throughout the month of February to place a bid. Bidding ends February 28th, at 7pm.
