Gene Colan Iron ManLegendary artist Gene Colan was hospitalized due to having difficulty breathing and being in terrible pain on Thursday April 21st, 2011.

On Friday, Gene underwent a successful radiology procedure to stop his internal bleeding. Since his family value their privacy, details have been understandably sparse. Gene is on an occasional morphine drip to alleviate the pain. According to Clifford Meth, his situation is tenuous and Gene’s family hopes that he can undergo a pain alleviating procedure early next week.

To generate funds for the artist, Clifford is assisting Gene in selling off the last of his artwork, including books and comics. The list of the books along with their starting private bid can be seen on Gene’s Blog posting. The prices listed are JUST the starting bid, I’m sure they’ll go higher. Here are just a few samples:
