Not only that, DC's chief creative officer and publisher, Jim Lee, will also be auctioning 60 original sketches. The proceeds from the auction will then be donated to support BINC in their efforts to help the community. The sketches are various DC characters. One character a day will be auctioned for the next two months, no character version will actually be repeated.

BINC is a nonprofit dedicated to assisting booksellers, retailers, and their employees in times of need. They have been providing assistance from funeral costs to medical bills. However, due to the pandemic, the requests have gone up, since most retail stores have no choice but to close at the moment.

It's amazing to see these companies offer help as much as they can in these unfortunate times. You can also lend support by visiting BINC's website here.
