    The showroom floor isn't the only place to acquire exclusive art pieces at Comic-Con this year.

    Documentarian Morgan Spurlock, along with Gotham Chopra and Kevin Smith, launched "Geeks for Peace" late Friday, a fund-raising party that included an auction of more than 25 one-of-a-kind paintings and sculptures.

    The event benefits Kids for Peace, a nonprofit that encourages young people to respect others and serve as worldwide advocates for peace.

    Red superhero capes, each emblazoned with a big, white peace symbol, were also for sale.

    Spurlock plans to make Geeks for Peace an annual event.

    "Next year will be even bigger, even better," he said.
