Who is Rocket Johnson? - Charity Auction

Over on the Animation Nation board, member Dr. Hong, ask members to pass along this notice.

"Who is Rocket Johnson?" is a 72 page graphic novel anthology being self-published by Walt Disney Animation Studio's Story Artists and Directors. It's an all-ages book in which every artist answers the question: "Who is Rocket Johnson?" It will be sold exclusively at booth 2302 in San Diego (http://www.comic-con.org/) and is a limited edition of 1,000 copies.

I’ve put a copy on Ebay to help support research in finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.
The book is signed by all of the Disney artists in the book and also comes with a set of pins we made special for Comic Con. The proceeds from this book will be donated to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (http://www.nationalmssociety.org) to fund cutting-edge research, drive change through advocacy, facilitate professional education, and provide programs and services to help people with MS and their families move their lives forward. The auction will end on Jul-10-2008 at 10:30 a.m. pst.

The auction is located here: item number - 160256489260

Please help us spread the word about the book and the auction!"

It's my total pleasure to pass the word along. It looks like a great book and the auction is a real inspiring action. The ebay auction page includes several interior pages. Here's wishing the best of everything to the creators. I'll be missing the Comic Con this year, so I'll have to have a friend try to pick me up a copy.

Enjoy, and pass the word.
