Mark Millar and Dynamic Forces have teamed up to put one lucky auctioneer in the pages of the upcoming ICON book, Nemesis!
With the bids on eBay currently at $1,600, Mark Millar explained that the proceeds of the auction would go towards a special fund to help handicapped children. Read on for a statement from the man himself:
My older brother, Dr. Bobby Millar, works with these children every day and he explained to me what a difference it would make if they could get a new bus… Resources are tight at all schools and hospitals in the current economic climate, but we had a great success with the Kick-Ass auction and feel hopeful that comic-book readers will dig deep again and they can build towards this pretty hefty amount of cash they need for the vehicle. Steven and I have had an amazing run of luck with Civil War and Old Man Logan and we’re hoping “Nemesis” will be similarly massive. To star as a comic-book hero is pretty cool and the intense movie-studio and production-company interest for “Nemesis” before the book even hits the stands should bode well that whoever wins this auction will get their name out there in many other media too, just like Dave Lizewski. I really hope people get behind this as the staff at the school do a terrific job and the kids would be delighted with this nice, new bus everyone has their eye on.
The winner of the auction will have his name put on the world’s smartest cop, Millar’s antagonist for the anti-Batman known as Nemesis. Wanna throw your hat in the ring? Bidding starts here.
