    'Who is Rocket Johnson?' charity auction



    7.01.2008

    CHARITY AUCTION

    "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!

    Post Comic Con update:

    WOW! Thank you to everyone who purchased a book! We were overwhelmed by how many people showed up on preview night to purchase it. We had a line down the hall! It was an exhausting and fun filled time at Comic Con. It was really great to meet so many people and it's an experience we will never forget! We also want to thank everyone that attended the Disney Story Process and Bolt panels.

    Stuart Ng and Labyrinth Books did grab some books from us to sell and ship internationally so if you would still like one please visit their sites - But hurry, we gave them a very small amount of books!


    So ...... now that it's all over, what's next?

    Good question! For the next installment in the Who, What, Why, Where series.
