Yesterday, Gail Simone tweeted about auctioning art that means a lot to her and asking other comic book writers to do the same to support Black Lives Matter.
My comic creator friends…
To try to raise some money for Black Lives Matter, I am putting up a package for auction including some art that means a lot to me.
It would mean a great deal to a LOT of people if you could, too. #ComicWritersChallenge

They answered the call.
Over the last 24 hours, creators like Mark Russell, Tim Seeley, Denton J. Tipton, Jody Houser, and Marc Guggenheim have joined in just to name a few. Even artists who aren’t in the industry have contributed. Many of these auctions are still running so don’t delay and jump into the auctioning now! Search #ComicWritersChallenge on Twitter now to find all the auctioning opportunities to get in on helping a great cause.
Possibly the “hottest” comic art to be auctioned was from Tim Seeley as he is auctioning (you have until June 8th) Ethan Van Sciver’s Cyberfrog page. It has the most retweets and likes so far for the #ComicWritersChallenge. Check that out below.
I own very little original art, but I do have this CYBERFROG/CREED cover by @EthanVanSciver I won in a fan contest in 1997. As part of the #ComicWritersChallenge by @GailSimone , I'm auctioning it off w/ proceeds going to BLM. Highest bid in thread by 6/8 @ 10AM gets it. pic.twitter.com/wVjG16XMq0

You don’t need to join in auctions to help Black Lives Matter. Go to their site and donate today if you have the means.
At the end of the day today, Simone tweeted her thanks, but there’s more to come. Get your wallets ready fans as Tom Taylor–and likely many more–are joining in tomorrow.
