Paul Dawson, who has put this auction together, hopes there will be something for everybody in the mix.
“I have loved comic books for as long as I can remember, he says, “and I decided to try to use some blank comic book sketch covers from my collection to try and give something back to People First Merseyside.
“When the first artist said yes I was blown away and that feeling never went away as more and more artists said yes.
“I never expected to get as positive a response as we ended up with and I cannot thank the artists who’s work I love enough for taking time out of their schedule to help People First Merseyside.”
• The auctions will be running until Saturday 8th December 2018, so if you have your eye on something put your bid in soon!
