These comic book shops are teaming up to help Filipino Frontliner heroes suit up

Comic Odyssey, Filbar’s, and Planet X are teaming up for a fundraiser to get PPEs to healthworkers.
ANCX | Jul 09 2020

Tirelessly working day and night to save lives, Filipino health workers have put their own lives on the line to fight COVID-19. Their bravery and selflessness continue to keep us healthy and safe amidst this global pandemic. In that way, they are the real-life counterparts of our favorite comic book heroes. And just like superheroes who suit up before heading into battle, frontliners need their own gear too.

Comic Odyssey, in association with Filbar’s and Planet X and in partnership with Wunderman Thompson Philippines, has set up a fundraising campaign to help purchase personal protective equipment for Filipino frontline health workers with SuitsForHeroes.com.

For every donation made through the website, Comic Odyssey will match 50 percent of the amount with store credit which can be used for back issues at Comic Odyssey’s BGC branch.

SuitsForHeroes.com also features an impressive lineup of tribute fanart honoring our brave frontliners created by renowned Filipino comic artists. The list of contributors include Leinil Yu, Stephen Segovia, Kajo Baldisimom, Whilce Portacio, Mico Suayan and Harvey Tolibao (with Levi Ramirez on colors). These exclusive pieces will be up for auction this July to raise additional funds.

Proceeds will go to the following organizations in support of our real-life superheroes: Frontliner Feeders Philippines, Kaya Natin, and Philippine General Hospital Medical Foundation Incorporated.
