San Diego based artist and all-around great guy, Joe Phillips (Silver Surfer, Wonder Woman, Star Trek) received the shocking and very unfortunate news last November that due to complications from undiagnosed diabetes he would have to undergo surgery to amputate his right foot.
Many freelance artists struggle with the high costs of health insurance and sadly Phillips is no different. Therefore, IDW Publishing and Comickaze Comics, Books and More are joining forces to raise funds to help Phillips with the financial burden resulting from this unexpected and tragic event. We invite you to join Joe’s friends, family, and fans for an evening of art, local craft beer, and loving support.
Attendees will have an opportunity to get sketches and signatures from local artists, including Joe, and mingle with IDW staff, including Ted Adams, CEO & Publisher, who will be available for portfolio reviews and conversation about the comic business.
Our goal is to raise a total of $15,000 (or more) and there will be many different options available so attendees can contribute to this very worthy cause and get some truly unique items in return. 100% of all proceeds will go to Joe Phillips and IDW Publishing will match total donations up to $5,000.

Additional panelists to be announced.
When the powerful Darkseid and his massive, relentless forces invade Earth, several previously unaligned superheroes—misunderstood and, in some cases, hunted by the authorities—discover that the only way to fend off the attack will be to work together as a cohesive unit. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Shazam, and, in his origin story, Cyborg combine their talents in an all-out battle to save the planet. Based on the 2012 graphic novel Justice League: Origin by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, Justice League: War provides a glimpse into the world before the Justice League was created, and offers the initial animated incarnation of DC Entertainment’s “The New 52.”
The cast features Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova, Life on Mars) as Batman, Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs) as Flash, Justin Kirk (Weeds) as Green Lantern, Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) as Cyborg, Michelle Monaghan (Mission Impossible III, Gone Baby Gone) as Wonder Woman, Alan Tudyk (Suburgatory, Dollhouse, Serenity) as Superman, Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) as Shazam, and Rocky Carroll (NCIS) as Silas Stone. On the villainous side, Steve Blum (Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox) provides the voice of Darkseid, and Bruce Thomas (Legally Blonde, Army of Darkness) gives voice to Desaad.
