BAT BOOST! Jock's Donated Batman Art Raises Over $800 For Kid With Leukemia

As fans all over the world prepared to drool over Jock's upcoming creator owned Image Comics series, Wytches on Sunday, a page the artist had donated from his Detective Comics run, was attracting closing bids online, with all proceeds going to help a two year old boy with leukemia.

Finally selling for NZ$817.97, the art from the Detective Comics #871 - part of the The Black Mirror story-arc, written by fellow Wytches co-creator, writer Scott Snyder - will help little Nathaniel on the journey that lies ahead and the expensive costs of treatment that accompany them. From the eBay listing:

"His prognosis is good but he has a long, not very nice, course of treatment ahead of him over the next few years which will involve the family travelling regularly to hospital."

Good to see comic creators getting out and helping in the world around them - and here's hoping the money truly does ease some worries for Nathaniel's family, so they can spend time enjoying the laughs they find together, rather than the bills on the horizon.

What do you think?

  1. Oh wow! Hey, good for Jock and all involved for doing that. Stuff like this helps give me hope that there truly are good people out there in this world, even if they're harder and harder to find.

  4. Always nice to see people help out in a more personal way. It's easy to write a check to a charity, harder to get involved on a case by case business. Good for them
