Jim Lee is back with his sketches and this time he had designed Ben Affleck’s Batman in a never-seen-before avatar. Wait for it, because there’s Thor and Beta Ray Bill too! He’s continuing his charity work with the sketches, as all the money earned from this is going straight to charity tackling the pandemic.
Before this, he has hit the mark of $300,000 raising funds with his sketches. With the money, he is also been assisting the comic book shops which are having troubles in retaining their stores due to the pandemic.
Jim Lee is auctioning his art through eBay and Ben Affleck’s Batman has already reached the bidding of $10,000. Whereas, Thor and Beta Ray Bill stand at $6,600.
Lee took to his Instagram account and posted both the sketches. He wrote:
“Sketch 47. ARMORED BATMAN! Committed to finishing my 60 sketches over 60 days after an extended break. This is the homestretch and this 9×12” shot of Armored Batman from Batman V Superman was chosen by @dhjadav123 who was the high bidder on Batman the Merciless. In 13 days, this campaign will end so if you’re an art collector looking to join in on the fundraising fun—these are the last sketches incoming. 4 more watercolors followed by 10 traditional pen and ink sketches. Link to the 3 day ebay auction is in my bio above. Proceeds from this auction go to benefit comic shops in need during this pandemic via nonprofit @thinkingbinc.

His latest work on Thor had the caption:
