secret identities online auction for japan relief

Check it out! Our friends behind the Asian American superhero comic book anthology Secret Identities have announced SIUniverse For Japan, an online auction to raise money for ongoing relief efforts in Japan.

Through ebay Giving Works, 100% of the final sale of any item sold through SIUniverse For Japan will go toward GlobalGiving’s Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. Search for eBay seller ID "siuniverseforjapan."

Over the next several weeks, you'll be able to bid on everything from original artwork to action figures, action figures, t-shirts, DVDs, CDs, comics, books, and other unique items donated by some of the creative talent behind Secret Identities -- and all proceeds will go towards rebuilding the lives of the people affected by the earthquake and tsunami disaster.

The first item, a copy of Secret Identities plus a bookplate signed by editors Jeff Yang, Parry Shen, Keith Chow and Jerry Ma, goes up for bid this morning. (Jerry's also throwing in a cool Voltron sketch to sweeten the deal.) Other Secret Identities-affiliated artists and creators who have contributed items to the auction include:
