ArtLoveMagic has purchased about 30 copies of this special blank artist’s cover of the XMen #1 comic. The cover is made from illustration bristol. The rest of the book is a normal comic book featuring the Xmen.

Saturday NIght (9/10/11) at Synchronicity, we’re going to pilot the idea of using these special comics to raise money for local children’s causes. Artists David Rodriguez, Will Klein, and Khalid Robertson will take the first 3 comics and draw original XMen covers on them. Will’s drawing the character Nightcrawler, Khalid will be doing Marvel Girl.

I don’t know who David’s decided to do yet.

The comics will be auctioned off during the night. Money collected will benefit local kids (I have a first target in mind, but haven’t spoken to them yet). Attendees of Synchronicity will be able to bid on the books. One of a kind. Originals.

If this all goes like I expect this will be an ongoing program, with many more artists. I want to call it Xavier’s School.

We’ll post pictures of the first 3 results here at the blog after Saturday Night’s show.

The XMen are, of course, the property of Marvel Comics.
