Rob Liefeld Auctioning Sketches to Benefit Comic Stores on Instagram

Rob Liefeld is auctioning off original art and sketches to help benefit struggling comic book stores. Today is the third day, with all of the money being directly paid to comic shops when the auctions close. Rob is offering to draw comics characters, anime characters, and taking requests for the sketches, which has led to gems like this admittedly great Venompool/Raphael TMNT piece.
