BBDO New York, Marvel Team Up to Release ‘Heroes Welcome’

By Erik Oster 

Heroes_Welcome_Avengers_CoverBBDO New York and its Diversity Council teamed up with Marvel Comics to create Heroes Welcome, a new Avengers comic timed to coincide with Marvel’s 75th anniversary, and available in its entirety online. The comic book was written by Eisner Award-winner Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by artist Mark Brooks, and “tells the story of what can happen when people of different backgrounds, talents and abilities come together and champion one another.”

BBDO New York and Marvel partnered with the Police Athletic League of New York to help share the comic book with children each of New York’s five boroguhs via interactive educational sessions. The first of these sessions took place today at the Police Athletic League’s Harlem center, and featured a surprise visit from Iron Man. You can view a photo from the event, along with credits, after the jump.
