DC Publisher/Chief Creative Officer Jim Lee is still hard at work cranking out high-value original sketches – a rarity from the busy executive in recent years – to benefit the Book Industry Charitable Foundation (BINC).

Lee’s plan to create 60 sketches in 60 days rolls on with five new pieces from the last several days of auctions. Since the weekend, Lee has taken a swing at several top-tier DC villains including Bane (previewed before the auction), Darkseid, Joker, and Atrocitus, as well as the heroic Cyborg, who Lee helped bring to the Justice League as part of the “New 52”.

Lee is posting a sketch a day, with the art then going for auction on eBay. The winner of each sketch gets to pick one of the next pieces Lee will draw.

Of these five pieces, Bane sold for $10,213.00; Darkseid fetched $7,100; Cyborg has a current high bid of $3,800; Atrocitus has a current bid of $3,050; and finally Joker is currently bidding at $10,800.

According to Lee, the images will be used as covers for future DC publications, and will be collected into their own book.

All proceeds from the auctions go directly to BINC, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to assisting booksellers in need – including comic booksellers. In the past, BINC has offered financial assistance to comic book stores affected by natural disasters and other unexpected financial crises.
