John Ostrander benefit auction

A benefit auction has been organized and planned for Wizard World Chicago on behalf of fellow Star Wars comics writer John Ostrander, following his glaucoma surgeries. A website has been set up,, with details on how you can support this worthy cause. Mike Gold and Adriane Nash of ComicMix have set up the auction with the help of the convention.

John was guest of honor at Midsouthcon this year — we all had a great time — and his contribution to the comics world (not to mention the Star Wars comics world) is legendary. In the freelance world, insurance is catch-as-catch-can, as I’ve had cause to find out — especially when it comes to expensive procedures. This is a chance to give back — thanks for your support!

Update: I’ve been in touch with the organizers and am contributing a comics lot including my personal signed copy of Purge, a complete signed KOTOR set, and some other items. More later…
