For those of you who missed my blog post about the CAPS benefit auction to help Stan and Sharon Sakai in their time of need, the auction was a huge success and a lot of support was provided by fans the world over. The love continues as Dark Horse Comics releases their hardcover book collection of some of the fantastic artwork created, The Sakai Project.
The book was officially released at San Diego Comic-Con 2014, and is already attracting a ton of attention. This beautiful volume contains artwork by such comic masters as Sergio Aragones, Matt Groening, Art Adams, Jeff Smith, Neal Adams, Tone Rodriguez, J. Scott Campbell, Stephen Silver, Eric Powell, and many many many more…oh yeah, and I’m in the book, too! Copies are going fast, so grab ’em while you can! Remember, all proceeds from these book sales go to help Sharon’s medical bills, so your support goes a long way. Thank you again, comic lovers and all awesome people!
UPDATE: The final CAPS-organized book signing for The Sakai Project will be Saturday, August 16th at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles, CA. In attendance will be Stan Sakai, Sergio Aragones, Tone Rodriguez and Bill Morrison (of Bongo’s Simpsons comics), William Stout, Dean Yeagle, myself, and many more artists! Please come on out and show your support for Stan and Usagi!
