Updated to add: You can find all the auctions right here.
On Tuesday, December 16, 2008, a series of auctions will begin at 5:00 p.m. Central Time, benefiting Rich Faber and his family. Rich is a well-known comic book inker and co-creator of the indy superhero series BUZZBOY. His wife Traci is battling Stage 4 metastatic melanoma. According to organizer Drew Geraci:
Times aren’t easy for anyone right now, but the Fabers are also raising their 2-year old son at home, and could use all the help that they can get right now as they try to pay for costly cancer treatments for Traci.
100% of the money raised through these auctions will be donated directly to the Faber family. These auctions are being run by longtime DC comic inker Drew Geraci, and Splash Page Comic Art.”
