DC Comics Kicks Off Year Two Of ‘We Can Be Heroes’ With Crowdfunding Project
DC Entertainment is kicking off year two of its We Can Be Heroes campaign with the slogan “Get something good. Do something great.” The biggest philanthropic initiative in the history of DC Comics and its parent company, Warner Bros., We Can Be Heroes is meant to raise both funds and awareness for the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa. To mark the second year of the endeavor, DC Entertainment announced today a crowdsourcing campaign on Indiegogo, with rewards for donations ranging from a lithograph of Batman art to Gary Frank drawing you into a Batman story.
There are 11 different donation levels in total, ranging in price from $10 to $5,000. Some of the levels include a one year print subscription to a DC Comics title of your choice; a customized hardcover edition of Batman Vol. 1; signed and with personal touches by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo; and for $5,000, Gary Frank will draw you into Batman: Year One Vol. 2. You’ll also receive the original art for you appearance, personalized and signed by Frank.
This crowdfunding effort is Batman themed, with perhaps more coming later that center around other DC characters. The campaign ends May 17th.
