Mark Millar's 'Jupiter's Children' auction raises $3.5k

By
Jupiter's Children writer Mark Millar has raised $3,550 (£2,200) in an auction to name one of the characters in the comic.

An unspecified character in the Image Comics-published miniseries will be named after the winning bidder, and the proceeds from the auction will be donated to the scribe's old school in Scotland.

Millar, who has previously held auctions to name characters in several of his previous comics, is donating the money so students at the school can attend a Christmas show.

"Kick-Ass auction bought a sound garden and other bits and bobs for a special needs school. Superior and Nemesis auctions paid for half a BUS for the same school, they help the wheel-chair users in the classes with transport, and the Secret Service and Supercrooks auctions went to my old primary school," Millar said.

"I've actually got a plan to extend this into something a little bigger, which I'll explain next year, that takes in another school and helps out with community projects in same area too.

"But it's a fairly ambitious thing tied in with volunteer work I do and I'll explain all next spring when you see what it relates too. I'm very lucky to have readers generous enough to take part in these auctions, but have some cool ideas how extra money can be raised."

Illustrated by Frank Quitely, Jupiter's Children is a multi-generational superhero epic that centres on young superbeings dealing with the burden of living up to their parents' legacy.

Jupiter's Children #1 will be released in April next year.
