Top Philippine comic book artists teamed up with Wunderman Thompson Philippines to thank all the frontline heroes
Wunderman Thompson Philippines, working with leading comic book retailers Comic Odyssey, Filbar’s and Planet X, have launched this #SuitsForHeroes fundraising campaign, to help purchase personal protective equipment (PPE) for frontliners.
Accessible at the SuitsForHeroes website, Comic Odyssey has pledged to reward each donor’s contribution with store credit which can be used for back issues at Comic Odyssey’s BGC branch.
Working day and night, health workers tirelessly put their lives on the line in the fight against COVID-19. Throughout the global pandemic, they have proven themselves the real-life counterparts of our favorite comic book heroes. And, much like the superheroes who suit up to save the world, frontliners have their own kind of gear in the form of PPE’s.
To promote the campaign, internationally-renowned Filipino comic book artists have donated their time and talents to create the artwork that paid tribute to the heroic frontliners. The artists include Leinil Yu (X-Men, Civil War), Stephen Segovia (Wonder Woman), Kajo Baldisimo (Trese, Buffy), Whilce Portacio (X-Men), Mico Suayan, and Harvey Tolibao (Green Lantern) with Levi Ramirez on colors. Towards the end of July, these exclusive pieces will be put up for auction to raise additional funds.
All #SuitsForHeroes proceeds will go to the following: Frontliner Feeders Philippines, Kaya Natin, and Philippine General Hospital Medical Foundation Incorporated.
