Nick Barrucci, CEO of Dynamic Forces, is making some of his original art available for sale to comic fans. Art from creators including Tom Raney, Mark Bagley, Scott Hanna, and Patrick Zircher. These pieces include pages from some of your books as The Outsiders, The Punisher, Uncanny X-Men, Ultimate Spider-Man, The Order and Robin. And part of all sales of the art will go to benefit the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.
“Art collecting has been a passion of mine for years,” says Barrucci. “For the past 30 years, I have been picking up pieces from my favorite artists whenever I can. I look at my collection on a regular basis, as I love to appreciate the form, and I was looking at some of these pages by great artists including Mark Bagley, Patrick Zircher and one of my favorite contemporary art teams – Tom Raney and Scott Hanna, and thought that while I have a great collection, I couldn’t possibly appreciate it all properly, as with Mark, Patrick, Tom and Scott I have over 400 pages of these fantastic artists and a few other incredible contemporary artists. I had contemplated selling these via auction houses, but realized that many fans may not have access to original art, and thought it would be cool to offer to the comics fan base first. This is the ultimate one-of-a-kind comics collectible as there is only one of each piece of original art, which is why we need to fill each order randomly.”
CBLDF’s Executive Director Charles Brownstein said: “Nick’s sincere enthusiasm for comics shines through in everything he does, and we’re honored that he continues to advocate for the CBLDF’s important work with projects like this one.”
The CBLDF is a non-profit organization who provides legal aid, education, and advocacy to protect the First Amendment rights of the readers, creators, retailers, publishers, and librarians of comics, manga, and graphic novels.
While orders will be randomly filled, it will be per artist. You can order Mark Bagley pages and/or Patrick Zircher pages and/or Tom Raney and Scott Hanna pages. Each random page will be available at $75.00 plus shipping and handling. You can find out more at this webpage.
