In the early 1990s a bunch of comic artists published under the “Legend” imprint contributed artwork to Frank Miller & Dave Gibbons’ “Martha Washington” series.
Walter Simonson, Paul Chadwick, Arthur Adams and Mike Mignola each produced a single pin-up image.
The original art has recently been unearthed and, inspired by #ComicWritersChallenge , will now be auctioned individually online through BritComicsArt.com for charity. In addition, Dave Gibbons and Frank Miller have each produced a new image for auction.
#MarthaArtAuctions proceeds will go directly to Black support organisations in the US and UK, chosen by the artists
The first auction will be for Walt Simonson's pin up of Martha Washington and it starts at 9pm UK time/ 1pm PDT on Monday 22nd June and will run for 5 days. Besides supporting a worthy cause this will be a rare opportunity to acquire a published Walt Simonson pin up for, as many collectors know, he does not usually sell his published artwork. Bids will be taken via the website and instructions can be found on the site once bidding opens on Monday.

Thank you and good luck.
