Host of the "DC All-Access" webseries, Jason Inman is calling on comic fans to donate their books to soldiers abroad. In a recent video, the host announced he would once again work with Operation Gratitude, a charity organization dedicated to delivering care packages to members of the armed forces, first responders, and the children of deployed soldiers. Inman and Operation Gratitude are hoping to send 20,000 comics to soldiers overseas, which is double the amount they managed to donate last year.
This is a cause that's close to Inman's heart, given that he's a fan of comics and a veteran as well, so he knows firsthand the positive impact the effort would yield. Inman's already received an immense amount of support from DC Co-Publisher Dan DiDio, who announced in Inman's video that DC would be contributing 5,000 comics to the drive. Didio knows how much comics have help armed forces members get through the day-to-day trudge in the past, referring to a story he heard at a convention, where a deployed fan picked up a "Batman" issue, and set up a convoy to go through a hot zone to get the next issue.
Fans are encouraged send any comics as long as they're in a readable condition. For anyone interested, refer to the image below for details on how to donate. The deadline is November 30th, and Inman is already 25% there with DC Comics' generous donation. Here's hoping they can reach that goal for a noble cause.
