San Francisco, CA: The Cartoon Art Museum is thrilled to announce its first themed original art fundraising auction, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy: A 25th Anniversary Tribute. Proceeds from the auction will support the Cartoon Art Museum’s operations and public programming as the board and staff prepare for CAM's grand reopening at 781 Beach Street in San Francisco later this summer. 

Since Mike Mignola’s Hellboy first hit the stands in 1993, it has become a cultural sensation, racking up a dozen Eisner Awards and inspiring numerous spinoffs, from a novel line, to video games, to feature films. The Cartoon Art Museum’s fundraising auction, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy: A 25th Anniversary Tribute will feature original artwork from dozens of top graphic novelists, animators, and cartoonists who have drawn inspiration from the master storyteller’s signature creation. Featured artists include Sergio Aragonés (MAD), Harry Bliss (The New Yorker), Jeffrey Brown (Darth Vader and Son), Sam Kieth (Sandman, The Maxx), Patrick McDonnell (Mutts), Steve Purcell (Sam and Max), Kent Williams (The Fountain), and more to be announced. 

"We’re thrilled to pay tribute to one of the comic world’s greatest creator-owned properties, Mike Mignola’s Hellboy, as the series celebrates its 25th anniversary,” said CAM Executive Director Summerlea Kashar. “The staff and board of the Cartoon Art Museum are very grateful for Mike’s assistance with this fundraiser, and we’re overwhelmed by the talent and generosity of the participating artists."

The online auction will launch on May 15 on eBay, under the user account “cartoonartmuseum and will continue with new pieces added biweekly throughout the summer. The Cartoon Art Museum will publish a full color catalog collecting all of the artwork created for this auction. An exhibition featuring this material alongside a selection of Mike Mignola’s own Hellboy artwork is tentatively planned for display at the Cartoon Art Museum in fall 2017.
