Charlie Harris, owner of Charlie's Comic Books, has rounded up some local cartoonist to draw their favorite comic book characters in the name of love and charity. Harris is holding an original art auction from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. this Saturday, Feb. 1, at his comic shop at 5460 E. Speedway.
All the proceeds are going to benefit the American Red Cross.
Here's a list of local artist and what pieces they have decided to create for you:
Jacob Breckenridge: Charlie Brown and Peppermint Patty
Tino Castaneda: Spider-Man and Black Cat
Jenn Corella: Hellblazer and Zatanna
Gene Hall: Krazy Kat and Ignatz
Jon Morris: Swamp Thing and Abby Arcane
Bea Romero: Robin and Starfire
Ernesto Romero: Conan and Red Sonja
Christian Vilaire: Howard The Duck and Beverly
Harris and all the artist participating have gone above and beyond for a number of local charities throughout the years. Last year they raised over $500 for the PRIMAVERA Foundation and $700 for Emerge: Center Against Domestic Violence.
Harris is famous for raffling off for rare comic book stuff for dirt cheap. One dollar gets you two raffle tickets to win rare action figures, graphic novels and signed comic books.
