Chicago Comicon — no longer Wizard World — is this weekend, and I am there but not signing — (Dark Horse is not exhibiting this year). Still, there’s a chance for Star Wars comics fans to contribute to a good cause by supporting the Comix4Sight auction for fellow Star Wars creator John Ostrander.
As mentioned earlier, the benefit is to help defray the costs of John’s successful glaucoma surgery, and a host of people have come forward to donate items for auction. My own contribution is a lot of Star Wars comics, including my personal copy of Purge, signed by John, and a complete run of Knights of the Old Republic, signed by me. The lot is as follows:
• The popular and hard-to-find Star Wars Purge #0, written and signed by John Ostrander
• Star Wars Legacy #0-15, written by Ostrander, unsigned
• Star Wars Jedi: Aayla Secura, written by Ostrander, unsigned
• and a complete run of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, written and signed by me; this is issues #0-43, including the rare Knights of the Old Republic Handbook.
That’s 62 comics, 45 signed (by my count). And that pales before some of the amazing stuff on auction. Be sure to go to the Comix4Sight page to check out what’s available — and be sure to bid!
