Wieringo-Inspired Art Available Via eBay Starting Today

Sketch from TellosPress Release

Much-beloved comic artist Mike Wieringo passed away on August 12 of a heart attack. Many artists immediately did Wieringo tribute pieces, and many wished to donate them to charity. As Mike was a lover of both comics and animals, Mike’s family elected to donate them to The Hero Initiative and the ASPCA. These pieces are being auctioned at: http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZheroinitiative. All proceeds will be split between The Hero Initiative and the ASPCA.

A total of eight pieces are being auctioned, most featuring Mike’s signature characters from his series, Tellos. Artists include Frank Cho, Jeremy Dale, Jamie Snell, Nate Lovett, Paul Renaud, Francis Manapul, Tom Beland, and Hero Initiative Board member Jim Valentino. There’s even a Mike Wieringo original donated by Filip Sablik of Top Cow Productions.

The Hero Initiative is the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated strictly to helping comic book creators in need. The Hero Initiative creates a financial safety net for yesterdays’ creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and entrée back into paying work.
