[Update] We Can Be Heroes...Soaring Towards 125K

DC's initiative to help fight hunger continues to pick up steam.

After calling the attention of ComicViners to the initial goal of the WE CAN BE HEROES -- SUPERMAN INITIATIVE... I would be totally remiss if I didn't point out that we met that goal sometime on Saturday! What's more... with some 13 hours left... we're well on our way to 120K!

Wait, what?! How did that happen?! We were at 63K just last week, no?!

Well one Tim Draper stepped up and donated some 25K for Jim Lee to paint his wall!

And a mysterious bidder donated 8K for the dinner with Geoff Johns and RIchard Donner! (And no, it wasn't me! Though I'd be more than happy to dress in a white shirt and bow tie and wait on these two titans!)

But don't let all these big numbers keep you from donating if you haven't already. There are still lots of ways to contribute to the WE CAN BE HEROES - SUPERMAN INITIATIVE. There's everything from the SUPERMAN UNCHAINED #1 WCBH's exclusive, to ball caps and t-shirts... you can even even donate as little as 10$ for downloads of five different Super-titles! (Psst! You don't even have to chose from all the glorious super swag at the site -- there's even a way just to make a donation.)

You notice I keep using the word "We" a lot! It is the perfect word the occasion: I'm not just talking about the royal DC We, or even the We that includes me, Scott Snyder, Jim Lee, Geoff Johns, Greg Pak, Kenneth Rocafort, James Tucker, Mike Carlin, Dan Jurgens and David Goyer... I'm talking about every "We" who have already given so much to fight hunger in the Horn of Africa...

... and I'm even talking about the "We" who are going to follow this link -- or forward it to a friend -- and use the power of the Internet and the compassion of comic fans everywhere to make this an even greater success!

I got the signed Batman/Superman a few weeks ago but I just had to donate one more time for the signed Superman Unchained Directors cut. Getting cool stuff is always great but the fact that it goes to a good cause is truly awesome.

agreed!

im glad I waited out on getting batman/superman at my LCS, and waited to get it here, ya it's pricier but it's going to a good cause and it's signed!

If they have a Green Lantern Themed we can be heroes with signed green lantern comics I might just have to fee all of Africa! (well not really im not that rich) lol

Bruce Wayne could have give away $2 billion, easily. ;) This is great news. Hope we get to do that more often to help out.

This is good news I got the Superman and Batman shirt last time :-D

I'd love to contribute, but I live in the UK and it's US Shipping only so there's no way I can get a hold of any of the awesome stuff that was available. But I'm very glad all the money being put forward by loyal fans is going towards something good and helpful. Fair play DC.
