Writer/artist Sean Murphy is auctioning off two original art pages from his forthcoming DC Black Label series Batman: Curse of the White Knight to raise money for a comics retail employee facing some unexpected medical bills. Heather Hurt is the social media manager of the Amazing Comic Shop in Fairfax, Virginia, and recently underwent a minor heart procedure.
"I saw that Heather is having trouble with medical bills, and wanted to help," Murphy tweeted. "So we're going to break the rules and auction off a non-spoilery Batman page from Curse of the White Knight."
"I don't really know Heather, but I know she's a hard worker at her comic shop from all the great interactions I've seen from her on Twitter," Murphy continued. "And thank you, Heather, for allowing me to help. Everyone in comics (and all your customers) are really thankful for people like you. Comics takes care of its own, so we all hope this helps."
Hurt has also set up a GoFundMe for those looking at other ways to help.
