For Immediate Release


All 100 covers displayed and auctioned over three tour stops

LOS ANGELES, CA (Nov. 2, 2011) – The Hero Initiative, the charity dedicated to helping comic creators in medical or financial need, is taking its Justice League of America #50 show on the road.

All 100 original covers created by comics’ top artists are currently available for view on the Hero Initiative Website. And starting in December, you’ll be able to see them live and in person…and own them through on-site auctions according to the following schedule:

Meltdown Comics, Los Angeles, CA, December 3, 2011: World premiere display of all 100 covers and auction of first one-third

Proxy bidding will also be available for bidders unable to attend the events.

The Justice League of America 100 Project represents Hero Initiative’s first major collaboration with DC Comics. DC generously donated 100 blank-covered cardstock copies of Justice League of America #50 to Hero, and 100 well-known stars such as Alan Davis, George Pérez, John Romita, Alex Ross and many more created original covers for Hero.
“I’m thrilled to be part of such a great project, and also showcased among so many of the greatest artists in the world,” said Hero Initiative Chairman George Pérez. “And of course, it’s wonderful that sales of the covers will go toward helping many comic creators in need.”
Both hardcover and softcover editions of The Justice League of America 100 Project, a book collecting all the covers, will be available for sale at all three auction venues as well.

“We are honored to support such a worthwhile cause and encourage DC Comics fans to participate in these Hero Initiative auctions that offer one-of-a-kind JUSTICE LEAGUE #50 covers,” stated Dan DiDio, co-publisher of DC Entertainment.

  1. Hi, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam comments? If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any help is very much appreciated.

  3. Hey there! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had to ask. Does operating a well-established blog like yours require a massive amount work? I am brand new to operating a blog but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!
