Auctions for Carla and Lance: Walt Simonson original art

I had a huge fanboy moment this week when I received this in my email from Walt Simonson:

Beta Ray Bill and Thor by Walt Simonson

Beta Ray Bill and Thor by Walt Simonson

Walt was kind enough to donate the piece to our auctions for our friends Carla and Lance Hoffman, who, according to their Facebook page, may be discharged soon. Lance’s sister offers an update, saying they were moved to Acute Rehab this past week, as their surgeries are done and healing well. Now they’re focused on rebuilding their strength and mobility via occupational and physical therapy.

You can bid on the Simonson artwork here, unless I beat you to it. And many thanks to Walt for the donation, and to Scott Dunbier for helping to make it happen.



Walter is truly one of the good guys. He didn’t have to do this, and no one would have noticed his absence if he hadn’t, but the fact that he did shows the type of man he is. It’ll also bring in thousands of dollars, so it’s not just a nice gesture, but an actual substantial benefit to the Hoffmans.

Holy crap, that is a beautiful piece. I put in a bit, knowing I would be outbid, but I figured I’d help a bit If somehow I won, I’d just live on Ramen for a month.
