On December 2nd, 2010 Float World Comics will be having a Rom Spaceknight benefit for creator Bill Mantlo who was tragically paralyzed in a hit and run car accident fifteen years ago.
Digital prints of various artist's interpretations will be on sale with proceeds to go to Mike Mantlo, Bill Mantlo's brother and caregiver. The original artwork will be offered for auction on Ebay after the exibit ends.
You can view the artwork from the exhibit here: http://romspacenite.blogspot.com/.
In addition, a book featuring the artwork will become available this January.
You can donate via Pay Pal to the Bill Mantlo Fund as well (credit cards accepted).
