The first People First Merseyside Comic Art Auction is here, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the organisation and there are some amazing pieces of art on offer.

People First Merseyside is a regional self-advocacy charity which is run by and for adults with learning disabilities. They are all about supporting adults with learning disabilities to speak out, be respected and live active, healthy and happy lives. Their work helps improve confidence and self-esteem, reduce social isolation, improve psychological well-being and gives people more choice and control over their lives.

2018 marks People First Merseyside’s 30th anniversary and to mark the occasion they are auctioning off 30 pieces of original comic art! 100% of all the winning bids will go direct to People First Merseyside to help them continue their work.

You can find all of the auctions on eBay from Thursday 28th November until Saturday 8th December.

The comic art on offer ranges from DC to Marvel, from 2000 AD to Viz, and from Doctor Who to Star Wars!

Paul, who has put this auction together, hopes there will be something for everybody in the mix.

“I have loved comic books for as long as I can remember and I decided to try to use some blank comic book sketch covers from my collection to try and give something back to People First Merseyside. When the first artist said yes I was blown away and that feeling never went away as more and more artists said yes”.

“I never expected to get as positive a response as we ended up with and I cannot thank the artists who’s work I love enough for taking time out of their schedule to help People First Merseyside”.
