You've probably heard a little about Mark Millar and Steve McNiven's next comic book series, Nemesis. When the character was decribed as "Batman meets the Joker" combined with an image that looked as if it was inspired by Heath Ledger's Joker performance, word was DC had something to say. Regardless of that, here is the chance to live out the dream that many comic book readers have had.
Have you ever imagined yourself as the star of a comic book? Mark Millar is offering you that chance. Nemesis is about the fight between America's smartest cop and the world's one and only super-villain. Who is the cop? That's where you come in! Dynamic Forces is hosting an auction to name the cop. The winner's name will be immortalized as the hero of the story. All proceeds will go directly into a special fund that will assist handicapped children.
The auction has started and runs until January 28 so you better get bidding today. You can check out the auction by going HERE. The starting bid was $99.00 and currently is at $1025.00. It's a cool idea to get your name in a comic and it's great that the money will go to a good cause.
"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," Mark Millar explains. "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."
"We're thrilled to help Mark out here with this awesome auction and to raise some much-needed money for a truly worthy cause," stated Dynamic Forces President Nick Barrucci. "'Nemesis' is poised to be another break-out book from Mark and Steven, and the chance to be in the book is the opportunity of a lifetime. Am I eligible to win?"
