Marc Jack­son is selling off a framed strip from his Dawg­tec­tive comic, which cen­tres on the ad­ven­tures of a ca­nine sleuth.

The money raised will be split be­tween two causes: The Lily Foun­da­tion, which of­fers sup­port to fam­i­lies who face the chal­lenges of Mi­to­chon­drial dis­ease, a rare and in­cur­able con­di­tion and Mac­cles­field Chil­dren’s Ward.

Marc hopes the money will help im­prove the wrestling’s finest tal­ents will be lin­ing up for the show such as tal­ented fe­male wrestler Nixon Newell, Josh Bodom known as the Most Hated Man in Great Bear - and mak­ing his re­turn to the pro­mo­tion, Jack Gal­lagher.

The start­ing bid for the art­work is £50.

Marc said: “I’m auc­tion­ing off a framed piece of art­work, from my Dawg­tec­tive comic that ap­pears in The Beano. The money hope­fully raised will be split be­tween two very wor­thy causes.”

Any­one in­ter­ested in own­ing a piece of orig­i­nal art can send Marc a di­rect mes­sage with the bid or post it on his Face­book page: Marc makes comics.

Marc, 41, lives in the town cen­tre.

He was an avid comic on the card then there is some­thing for ev­ery­one on the evening.

He said: “It has been a num­ber of years since there has been any wrestling in Mac­cles­field and we at Great Bear are de­lighted to bring our stars to you for a night of high in­ten­sity ac­tion suit­able for ages three to 103.

“Our shows are ex­tremely fam­ily friendly, you don’t have to worry about kids be­ing ex­posed to any­thing crude as part reader when he was a boy and was draw­ing his own char­ac­ters when he was five-years-old.

The for­mer Fal­li­b­roome Academy pupil’s flair saw him go on to ex­cel in art and graphic de­sign.

He now runs his own brand­ing and graphic de­sign busi­ness Cre­ative Hero on Roe Street.

His grand­fa­ther was Manch­ester Evening News jour­nal­ist Thomas Jack­son, who trag­i­cally died in the Mu­nich Air Crash in 1958.
