2000AD art by Massimo Belardinelli, Clint Langley and more offered in aid of Kirkwood Hospice on eBay

There’s a charity auction by Kirklees-based Kirkwood Hospice on eBay at present, offering a variety of 2000AD art, including pages of “Slaine“, which should interest many downthetubes readers. All these auctions close on Thursday 20th October 2022 and all proceeds of the sales go to the charity.

This page from “Blackhawk” by Belardinelli is just one item on offer, a strip that began in Tornado but continued into the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic… The charity doesn’t know which Prog the page is from. Can anyone help?

The Hospice is also offering what looks like a complete episode of “The Dead” , pages published in Prog 515 (Pages 26-30), in 1987.
