For the second year, DC Comics are raising money for charity, and rewarding contributors with such collectibles as signed editions of the games Batman: Arkham City and Injustice: Gods Among Us.
Called We Can Be Heroes (wecanbeheroes.org), the initiative is hoping to raise money to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa.
The charity drive has already met its initial goal of $50,000, so DC have doubled the amount and added new rewards.
The donations work much like a PBS pledge drive, but with cooler prizes than a tote bag. For instance, $40.00 will get you an exclusive W.C.B.H. Superman/Batman t-shirt drawn by Jim Lee, while a donation of $10,000 gets you a lunch with Lee and Geoff Johns at Comic-Con as well as the aforementioned shirt, two passes to Comic-Con, invites to DC’s party, a W.C.B.H. litho of Batman: Earth One, airfare, and hotel.
While the five signed editions of Injustice are already sold out, there are still, as of the time I wrote this sentence, eleven of the fifteen Arkham City collections, which are 360 versions of the game autographed by Rocksteady Studios’ founder Sefton Hill. They are available for a donation of $100.00.
To donate, visit Indiegogo.
In addition, you can buy special We Can Be Heroes shirts, mugs, posters, water bottles, and iPhone cases here.
