Comic fans have the chance to appear alongside legendary superhero Batman thanks to a fund-raising auction.
This one-off opportunity is part of a sale to support the Comic Book Alliance (previously). It also includes signed comics, books and artwork from the likes of Hunt Emerson, David Lloyd, Bryan Talbot and Alan Moore among many others.
The winner in the Batman bid can choose to be killed by the villain or saved by Batman in a story illustrated by Chris Burnham and written by Grant Morrison. The story will appear in Batman Inc. number 4, due to be published on 16th February 2011. With bids starting at 99p, the auction will close on the evening of Sunday 12th December.
If, on the other hand, classic Batman is more your thing, there’s a rare opportunity to get your hands on a copy of Detective Comics number 27 from May 1939, which features the first appearance of the Caped Crusader, in a separate auction in at Dominic Winter Book Auctions in Gloucestershire on 16th December.
