Jim Lee Launches Kickstarter for Comic Art Backpacks

Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics Jim Lee and fashion-brand HEX launched a crowdfunding campaign today in support of two new backpacks designed specifically for comics artists and collectors.

Now backable on Kickstarter, the first backpack, called HEX x Jim Lee Artist Backpack, is designed to allow artists to move their art supplies and portfolio safely. The second, dubbed the HEX x Jim Lee Collectors Backpack, provides convention goers and collectors with a safe way to haul their valuable loads around.
