Visions of an Icon: Wolverine online auction news

With the holiday season quickly approaching and the current HERO INITIATIVE’s Wolverine 100 project  auctions on eBay this month we have decided we would rather not go head-to-head with them and are rescheduling the online auctions of the Visions of an Icon: Wolverine art submissions until February 2010 (watch this site for the official start date and details).

All of the original artwork received to date is currently being scanned and will soon be up for display in our Comic Art Fans Visions of an Icon: Wolverine gallery.

In the meantime, thanks to all the attendees of the SPEAKEASY COMIC BOOK SHOW on November 5th which featured all the pieces we’ve received, to date, for the annual fundraiser art exhibit. Submissions have exceeded our expectations with over 50% more contributions this year than last and more to come! Also, big thanks to the creators who dropped off illustrations that night for inclusion in the exhibit such as George Todorovski (The Bear Stories), Shane Heron (Awesome Marcus Ninja), Gibson Quarter (2000 A.D.), Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth), and J. Korim (Neozoic).

The extension to February 2010 also gives us time to accept a few additional entries that are heading our way from creators such as Nick Bradshaw, Fiona Staples and others. For any artists who might still be considering being a part of our Visions: Wolverine fundraiser please note that you still have time to contribute — if you are interested, please contact us at info@joeshusterawards.com
