LOS ANGELES, CA (May 3, 2017)
-- Hero Initiative, the charity that helps comic book creators in medical and financial need, is showing off Wonder Woman in all her glory!
DC Entertainment created a precious few blank-covered editions of the Wonder Woman 75th Anniversary Special
and the Hero Initiative got 100+ top artists to do original drawings right on the cover. The result is The Wonder Woman 100 Project
! An online gallery of all 111 covers is now up for all to view at Hero Initiative’s website
And Hero Initiative will auction off at three exciting live events:
• May 20 at The Comic Bug
, Manhattan Beach, CA
• May 27 at the Phoenix Comicon
, Phoenix, AZ
• June 10 at Bedrock City Comics
, Houston, TX
One-third of all covers will be auctioned at each venue, and full details on times, locations, and how to bid are found on Hero’s gallery page.
In addition, a Wonder Woman 100 Project
softcover book collecting the covers will be available in June (Diamond Order Code APR170441). A limited edition hardcover will be available direct from Hero Initiative at the same time.
“We’re thrilled to partner again with Hero Initiative to celebrate Wonder Woman and support such a worthwhile cause,” stated DC Entertainment Publisher Dan DiDio. “The original covers are impressive and sure to be a hit with Wonder Woman fans and collectors.”
