Francesco Francavilla is a comic artist star on the rise with high profile work for both Marvel and DC right now. In other news, a bunch of people decided they would actually fund a statue of RoboCop in Detroit (never mind real charities that could have used that $60,000, and growing). These two stories have intersected as Francavilla decided to do something good for the world and has made his own drawing of RoboCop (seen above) and is auctioning it off on his blog with the funds going to an actual worthy cause, Forgotten Harvest, and thus this money will actually help others not just provide a cheap laugh.
If you are keen to actually help people, and get some very cool art in the process, then head over to Francavilla's blog and place a bid. He'll even cover postage to you and throw in a copy of his sketchbook. The bidding started at $50, and will go up in $5 increments, but is already up to $200 at this time of posting.
