If you are heading to Comic Con in New York this weekend, make sure to stop by Artist Alley and check out NYC & Company and ReedPOP’s display of Marvel hero themed FDNY custom helmets.

Celebrating the FDNY’s 150th anniversary, a group of Marvel heavyweights including Joe Quesada and Damion Scott, lent their design skills to this super powered series of helmets.

The helmets will be going up for auction on Saturday this week, and later on Oct. 19th-23rd ReedPOP will auction the rest on eBay. According to FDNY press secretary, Frank Dwyer, all proceeds will be going to the FDNY Foundation.
