To further honor Adam, the show floor of the L.A. Comic Con will host a Batman Charity Art Gallery presented by Ralph Garman Meltdown Comics. This unique auction will be in booth #1345 Participating will be a variety of noted Batman artists and celebrities who will donate pieces for purchase, with all proceeds donated in Adam West’s name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

LA’s a long way for me to trek, so I’ll have to give this one a pass. But, of you are going and are considering picking up a con sketch, this is one way of doing so and supporting a worthy cause.
