We are SUPER excited to announce that Dynamite Comics have chosen us as the charity to receive proceeds from The Boys vs Project Superpowers comics bundle.

Get up to speed for season 2 of the hit Amazon Prime superhero TV series ‘The Boys’ starring Karl Urban, Jack Quaid and Chace Crawford, with this suped-up comics bundle featuring all 12 volumes of The Boys, the comic that inspired it.  Also included is every Project Superpowers chapter to date – that’s enough to kick some butt and save some whales!

Humble Bundle is an online platform that sells bundles of books, games and software for a fraction of the retail price and all purchases help support good causes. With their community of over 12 million customers worldwide, Humble Bundle have been incredible supporters of WDC and our work since 2014, raising a staggering £2.3 million for us so far. Through Humble Bundle’s flexible pricing policy you can choose the price you want to pay, and how your money is divided between the creators of the titles, Humble Bundle and their chosen charities. In other words, you can choose how much of your cash goes to supporting our vital work protecting those super whales and dolphins!

What makes this bundle so fin-tastic for WDC is the link it has to a certain character in The Boys. Those who've watched the first season of the Prime show or are familiar with the comics know that the aquatic superhero character, The Deep, played by Chace Crawford, has a great love for whales and dolphins and this made it a natural choice for Dynamite to partner with WDC.

Abbie Cheesman, WDC’s partnerships manager said: "We were delighted when our long-standing friends at Humble Bundle told us that the team at Dynamite had chosen WDC as the charity partner for ‘The Boys and The Supes’ bundle as we share The Deep’s passion for saving dolphins from a life in captivity (thankfully the efforts of our expert captivity team that this bundle will help fund are a little more . .  successful). On behalf of everyone at WDC I’d like to say a huge whale-sized ‘thank you’ to Dynamite for their incredible generosity and to each and every person who chooses to support WDC through purchasing of this bundle. The funds raised will have an amazing impact on our work to help ensure every whale and dolphin is safe and free."

Nick Barrucci, CEO of Dynamite Entertainment said: "With dolphins playing a part in The Boys Season 1, when we were approached by Humble Bundle to work with Whale and Dolphin Conservation, we thought it ideal to help support the animals in our world. We are proud to be a part of this program, and work hand in hand with WDC for this fantastic cause."

Get your comics bundle and save some whales (and the world) today.
