The fifth in a series of modern comic artists inking the same Dracula drawing by the legendary Gene Colan. This piece is inked by Ande Parks, known as an inker on books such as Green Arrow, Nightwing, The Exterminators, Daredevil, and many more. 

The back story:
Several months ago, artist Gabriel Hardman mentioned on Twitter that he was thinking of inking a copy of a Gene Colan piece for fun. I (inker/writer Ande Parks) said I had always wanted to do the same. We agreed on a drawing found online and we were off. A month or so later, several of today's top comic artists had taken a crack at the same drawing.

Those artist then agreed that they would not be comfortable selling the pieces created as part of this interesting artistic challenge. These pieces were not done to make a profit, and the genesis of the whole project was the brilliance of Gene Colan. The inkers agreed that the pieces would be auctioned off here, with the proceeds benefiting the Hero Initiative. You can read more about Hero Initiative's invaluable efforts on behalf of comic artists here: Hero Initiative

As of now there are eight inked pieces that will go up for auction over the next few weeks. The artists to be included are Mitch Breitweiser, Kody Chamberlain, Gabriel Hardman, Kevin Mellon, Ande Parks, Ron Salas, Chris Samnee, and Brent Schoonover. There may be more on the way, so keep an eye out!

Just to be super clear... THESE INKED PIECES WERE DONE OVER COPIES OF GENE COLAN'S ORIGINAL PENCIL DRAWING. YOU ARE GETTING A FANTASTIC, ONE-OF-A-KIND PIECE OF INKED ART, BUT NONE OF THESE DRAWINGS WERE EVER TOUCHED BY GENE COLAN. THIS AUCTION DOES NOT INCLUDE A COPY OF THE PENCILS. A SCAN OF THE PENCILED PIECE IS AVAILABLE ONLINE HERE.

This inked piece by Ande Parks measures 11 by 17, on heavy Bristol board. It is signed and dated by Ande.

Paypal only. FREE SHIPPING IN THE US! I will ship worldwide, but buyers outside the US will have to pay actual costs for International Priority shipping. I will combine shipping if you win multiple inked pieces. Please let me know after this auction ends if you think you may win another item.

Bid early, bid often, and spread the word. It's for a good cause. REMEMBER, ALL PROCEEDS GO TO BENEFIT THE GOOD WORK OF THE HERO INITIATIVE!

Update: I went ahead and traced Gene's signature on the piece. New scan added to show both "signatures".
