Auction to benefit ailing Slayers artist. Legendary comic book artist Gene Colan (who illustrated two Tales of the Slayers stories by writer Doug Petrie), is seriously ill and lacking health insurance. Luckily, many of his friends...including Stan Lee, Neil Gaiman, Harlan Ellison, and BtVS novelist Christopher Golden...have rallied to his side, donating items for an auction to raise money for Gene's bills.
On a personal note, I'd just like to say that I had the pleasure of interviewing Gene for SlayerLit a while back, and he is every bit the gracious gentleman. He is hopeful of recovering from his ailments, and I wish him only the best of health.
