Programmer by day, comic nerd by night. My official job title is "Director of Janitorial Engineering"
As you are likely aware about a month ago we released our Exclusive Amazing Spider-Man #1 cover. We had always decided that we would destroy a large portion of the leftovers for a few reasons:
After careful consideration however, we found a solution that solves all of the above AND has an added benefit as well...supporting kids!
Enter ComicBooks for Kids!
ComicBooks for Kids is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide kid friendly comic books to children in hospitals and cancer centers. These kids are having a tough go of it and usually have a lot of down time. What better way to occupy that downtime than by reading and getting hooked on comic books (hopefully)!
We have provided a contribution of 1,400 of the Regular Variant Cover and might even do more later (we are discussing the Virgin Variants as well). Here is where the comics have gone:
The last 280 is for them to hand out on their own in smaller quantities over time. We also covered the shipping for each case!
If you have not heard about ComicBooks for Kids we highly recommend that you head over to their website to read up on what they are doing and how you can help. If you have comics that you do not want anymore that are still in decent shape and are kid friendly donate them to a kid!
