Busch x Big Buck Hunter Team Up To Save Wildlife

Dive bar fans rejoice because today, Busch Beer and Big Buck Hunter have announced a one-of-a-kind official partnership.

It’s the duo you always knew you needed, but beyond the standard in-game and on-pack partnership you’d expect (we have that too, and it’s pretty cool!), these two local-bar staples are really coming together for a good cause—to raise funding and awareness for wildlife conservation efforts.

You’re probably aware hunting popularity has declined recently, but did you know that a whopping 60% of wildlife conservation funding comes from the sale of hunting permits? So, counterintuitively, this decline is also putting our country’s ability to fund conservation efforts at serious risk.

Enter the Busch Big Buck Hunter Permit. Starting today, hunters and non-hunters alike can help raise funds and awareness for this issue one bar, beer and buck at a time.

Permits are available for purchase for $5 on BigBuckHunter.com, with all proceeds benefitting the National Forest Foundation (NFF) and their habitat conservation efforts. In addition to supporting these efforts, swiping your permit at any Big Buck Hunter machine nationwide will unlock an exclusive “Great White Buck” level. Shoot the White Buck and you’ll have a chance to take home a console of your own!

Kevin Smith Is Bringing Back Masters Of The Universe

As announced at a recent panel during Power-Con in Anaheim, CA, DC and Mattel are teaming up once again to chronicle new adventures of Eternia’s greatest champion in HE-MAN AND THE MASTERS OF THE MULTIVERSE, a six-issue limited series debuting in November. Writer Tim Seeley, artists Dan Fraga and Richard Friend, along with cover artist Inhyuk Lee join forces to tell this tale of heroes making their last stand to protect their kingdoms against an impossible threat. In their desperation, they’re forced to risk their futures by reaching out to an unlikely and potentially dangerous ally.

“The Masters of the Universe franchise continues with the all-new comic book series, He-Man and the Masters of the Multiverse,” said Rob David, VP of Mattel. “With multiple He-Mans working together from different dimensions to save the multiverse, this series created in partnership with the expert writers and illustrators from DC Comics will be sure to delight new and old fans alike, while adding an entirely new dimension to the Power of Grayskull.”

The scourge of Anti-Eternia is unleashed on the Multiverse bent on utter destruction. Each version of Eternia has fallen in the wake of his devastation as he steals its power and grows stronger. Now it’s up to a rag-tag team of surviving He-Men from across the multiverse to stem the tide, but to do so they’ll have to recruit the one man in existence that might help them win: Prince Keldor, the man who would be Skeletor!

“DC has had a long-standing and exciting partnership with Mattel in bringing the adventures of He-Man to comics and our fans,” said Hank Kanalz, SVP, Publishing Strategy and Support Services. “DC also knows what it means to showcase characters from across its own multiverse; I’m looking forward to seeing the different iterations of He-Man and other Masters of the Universe characters in this series.”

On sale November 20, this 32-page debut issue also features a variant cover by interior artist Dan Fraga and is priced at $3.99.
