“We’re grateful to see the incredible effort Nick Barrucci and Dynamite are putting in to make this first of its kind ComicLink auction create an impact for CBLDF’s work protecting comics! Our thanks go out to the many creators who are participating and the bidders whose contributions will ensure that we can continue to make a difference for the freedom to read comics” said Charles Brownstein of the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
“I can’t thank all of the great creators enough for donating the art and helping to save, spay and neuter the animals, whether feral, stray, abused and/or injured, and allow them to live better lives” states Pam Ott of Saved Whiskers Rescue Organization. “Thanks to Josh Nathanson of Comic Link for hosting the auction, and I can’t thank Martha Donato from New Jersey Comic Expo enough for hosting the incredible art at her show.”
