Official Press Release
Have you ever imagined yourself as the star of a comic book?Â Award-winning writer Mark Millar is offering YOU that chance!Â Millar's upcoming comic book, "Nemesis" (illustrated by Millar's co-creator, best-selling artist Steven McNiven), is about the fight between America's smartest cop and the world's one and only super-villain.Â Who is that cop?Â Well, that's where you come in!
Dynamic Forces will be hosting an auction to name that cop, and the winner's name will be immortalized as the hero of the story!Â Best of all, all proceeds raised from this once-in-a-lifetime event will go directly into a special fund that will assist handicapped children.
"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.Â "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?"
The auction goes live starting Monday, January 25, 2010, and can be found here http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270521161211
Millar has had amazing success with his creator-owned characters being picked up for movies and it was only a few years ago that Dave Lizewski was immortalized as the winning bidder for the Kick-Ass auction.Â Now, Dave will now be immortalized forever in comic books, movies, and upcoming video games and toys.Â Be sure to bid at http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=270521161211 for your chance to be the next Dave Lizewski (or Peter Parker)!
