People First!

Art by Doctor Who storyboard artist Mike Collins.
I've just been informed of this superb auction for a worthy cause. The People First Merseyside Charity Auction has 30 pieces of original comic art from some of the top names in comics to raise money for people with learning difficulties.

People First Merseyside is an organisation for people with learning disabilities, managed by people with learning disabilities. They are a registered charity and a limited company.

People First has supported adults in Merseyside for more than 20 years. People First Merseyside started in 1988 and their members come from Liverpool and Sefton.
Art by Viz comic's Simon Thorp. 

The pieces for the auction have been drawn on the blank cover variants of various comics, and include an impressive array of talent: Simon Bisley, Dan Brereton, Nick Brokenshire, Mark Buckingham, Mike Collins, Boo Cook, Jonathan Edwards, Hunt Emerson, Duncan Fegredo, Cully Hamner, John Higgins, Kev Hopgood, Frazer Irving, Jock, Christopher Jones, Cam Kennedy, Roger Langridge, David Lloyd, Brendan McCarthy, John McCrea, Luke McGarry, Jim Mahfood, Alex Maleev, Brett Parson, Sean Phillips, Seth, Declan Shalvey, Simon Thorp and Steve Yeowell!
