My dear friends, Tony and Rachelle Atkinson, are in need of help. Rachelle is my regular colorist for the comics and covers I draw at Marvel. If you’ve enjoyed any of my comics at Marvel from the 2014 Nightcrawler series to present day, most likely, you’ve seen Rachelle’s color art over my line art. She is a wonderful collaborator. Rachelle and Tony are kind, loyal and generous friends.
My wife, Dawn and I are often table neighbors next to Rachelle and Tony at comic cons like Emerald City Comic Con, C2E2, and New York Comic Con. We have become very good friends over the years.
Tony was taken to the hospital by ambulance yesterday due to heart and kidney failure. They are incurring medical debt and can use our help.
If you have the means and would like to donate directly to their GoFundMe account, CLICK HERE to make a donation.
I am auctioning off this original Jean Grey piece to help raise money for them. (Jean Grey is Rachelle’s favorite comic book character.)

Thank you for your support, good thoughts, and prayers for Tony, Rachelle, and their three kids.
