Longtime comic book artist Tony Daniel provided his take on the Gotham City Sirens for Jim Lee‘s ongoing charity auction.
Available for bidding on Lee’s official eBay page, Daniel’s sketch shows Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Catwoman after they captured fan-favorite Batman villain the Joker. A description for the item reads, “Superstar comic book illustrator and writer TONY DANIEL has illustrated this amazing 11×17″ Gotham City Sirens beauty, which spotlights all the fan favorite DC characters we know and love such as Catwoman, Poison Ivy, Harley Quinn and the Joker!” At the time of writing, the sketch is up to a bid of $3,050, with two days left.
DC Comic Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee has been selling sketches to benefit the Book Industry Charitable Foundation, which is a nonprofit that is currently helping comic shops and independent bookstores impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
In addition to Tony Daniel, many other famed comic book creators have joined in Lee’s efforts by selling their own sketches via Lee’s eBay page. These artists include Ivan Reis, Bryan Hitch, Art Adams and Dustin Nguyen.
The auctioned sketches have already brought in $227,000, with all proceeds going to the BICF. Additionally, DC Comics has donated $250,000 to the charity.
