Colan Auction Results

An Iron Man cover donated by top British comics artist Jon Haward to raise money to help veteran comics artist Gene Colan who is very ill and has no medical insurance has raised $290 for the cause.

“I wish it was more, but I guess every penny counts,” says Jon, who cites Gene Colan as one of his all time favourite artists, who asked downthetubes to help plug the auction item.

The pencils were drawn for the cover of Panini UK’s Marvel Pocket Book Invincible Iron Man Volume 1: The Tragedy and the Triumph. The title has just been published in the UK.

Auction organiser Clifford Meth also has several other piece of art on offer to help raise money for Gene, which currently include an unpublished page of Gene Colan art inked by Neal Adams and more.
