Since it was established in 2000, the non-profit organization The Hero Initiative has been raising money to help comic creators in times of need — and their latest charity drive could net you some spectacular Hellboy art, as well as highlight a needy cause.

The Hellboy 100, the latest “100” project from THI, sees 100 blank covered versions of Dark Horse’s Hellboy and the BRPD #1 sent out to different comic artists — with contributors like Rafael Albuquerque, Ben Templesmith, Agnes Garbowska and John Cassaday among the 100 — who then plaster said blank covers with fabulous art featuring Mike Mignola’s supernatural-crime-fighting Demon. You can check out some of the completed covers by Bill Sienkiewicz, Chris Samnee and Mignola himself below:
Starting today, The Hero Initiative will place 10 covers at a time on eBay over the next 10 weeks, with all the money made from the sales going towards helping the organization provide financial aid to freelance comic book writers and artists in need.
