The world watched as rains and floods ravaged Metro Manila just a few weeks ago leaving many in our city displaced. While news of the effects of this calamity has left the main headlines, the truth is there are many who are still in need of relief.
That is why we’ve created a relief fund and will be working with Angel Brigade to make sure the donations make it to those in need.
Local and international comic book artists are generously donating original artwork, prints, books, and other items to help raise funds for the flood victims. These donations will be auctioned off on eBay, and proceeds will go to the relief.
UPDATE 11/10: We would like to thank all the artists who have generously given their art and efforts in helping us with this fundraiser. All artwork has now been put up for auction on eBay and you can view the listings by clicking here.
Auctions are live now and will end on Monday, November 19, 2012 at around 7:00-7:30 pm PST // 10:00-10:30 pm EST (Tuesday, November 20, 2012 11:00-11:30 am Manila time). Please watch each item for their specific ending times.
