Gene Colan’s Final Work For Sale

Legendary comic book creator Gene Colan is sick. And through long term friend and colleague, Clifford Meth, he is selling off the last of his artwork and signed books to fund his future needs, with the knowledge that he is unlikely to be drawing again any time soon.
