BERNIE WRIGHTSON SKETCH AT ALBURQUEQUE, JUNE 25
Auction benefits Hero Initiative, ain't that swell?

You are bidding on a GREAT and once (okay, twice!) in-a-lifetime opportunity: The chance to get a convention sketch from master artist Bernie Wrightson at the Albuquerque Comic Expo , June 24-26!

Bernie will do one sketch per day on both June 25 and 26. This is the June 25 auction; a similar auction is currently running for the June 26 piece.

The winning bidder will get a single-character drawing of their choosing. Any background elements will be at the artist's discretion. The sketch will be done on a high-quality 3-ply board provided by Hero Initiative, comic backing-board sized, 6.5-by-10 inches.

The winning bidder MUST be paid in full by June 23 and bring their PayPal receipt with photo ID to the Hero Initiative booth, #615.

PLEASE NOTE: The art shown here is a representative sample of Bernie Wrightson art and not part of this specific auction.

Here’s the five Ws.
WHO: Bernie Wrightson is a 40-year veteran comic book artist and multiple award winner whose credits include Swamp Thing, Batman: The Cult, Punisher and more!

WHAT: A sketch from Bernie Wrightson!

WHY: Because Bernie is a jolly good fella, and he believes in and supports The Hero Initiative!

WHERE: This sketch will take place in conjunction with the Albuquerque Comic Expo. You must be present at the convention and report to the Hero Initiative booth, #615, if you’re the winner.

WHEN: The Albuquerque Comic Expo runs June 24-26, 2011.

IF YOU WIN…
• Please come to the Hero Initiative booth, #615, at Albuquerque Comic Expo. Bring your photo ID. We'll introduce you to Bernie!

FAQ:
Q: Whoo-wee! How much ya think I can scalp this for?
A: Big donut. This is non-transferable, and any attempt at transfer will not be honored. Fairly warned be thee.

Q: But man, I won't be in Albuquerque, and I'd really like this!
A: Not really a question, but here we go: Bernie's schedule is tight, so pegging it to this weekend helps his calendar immeasurably. Plus, he'd like to meet the winner! C'mon. Let's make it nice and personal for everyone!

Q: Is this tax deductible?
A: Yes, to the extent allowed by law. The Hero Initiative is a non-profit organization recognized by the federal government under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue code.

Q: Okay, what’s that mean?
A: We cannot legally give tax advice. According to IRS regulations, we cannot determine the value of this donation. That is between you and your accountant. According to the IRS, the amount of deduction is based on the price that a "willing buyer" will pay for your item. We will happily issue a donation receipt, and will specify when your donation was made and what was paid.

This auction is a benefit for The Hero Initiative, the first-ever federally chartered not-for-profit corporation dedicated to helping comic book creators in need. Hero creates a financial safety net for yesterdays' creators who may need emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials of life, and entrée back into paying work.
