In celebration of the 30th Anniversary of Star Wars, I am auctioning off a copy of my Dark Horse graphic novel Star Wars: Tag & Bink Were Here, on ebay’s charity site – “Mission Fish”.
It is the story of two rebel pilots who avoid capture on board Princess Leia’s ship, the Rebel Blockade Runner, by disguising themselves as stormtroopers. This leads them on an adventure through the galaxy – crossing paths with every major character in the Star Wars universe, and affecting the fate of all they encounter.
The Tag & Bink series was named one of the top five Star Wars comics of all-time by Wizards Magazine. They also included the graphic novel on their 2007 list of “must have comics for your collection”. In addition, the American Library Association named the T&BWH one of the best graphic novels of 2006.
The copy that I am putting up for auction was made available by the generous contributions of Dark Horse Publishing and Lucasfilm Limited. It contains all four episodes in the series and has been signed bymyself, the artist Lucas Marangon (also performing art duties on Red 5’s Abyss), my two brothers (on whom Tag and Bink are modeled), and the creator of the Star Wars universe himself – George Lucas!
A letter from Lucasfilm will be included in the sale of the graphic novel to attest to the signature’s authenticity and all proceeds from this auction will go to NARSAD – the largest donor-supported organization in the world dedicated to supporting research on brain and behavior disorders. Their mission is to raise and distribute funding for the most promising psychiatric research in order to develop new preventative measures, better diagnoses and improved treatments for severe mental illnesses.
This is a tax-deductible donation. Click here to visit the auction.
