KIA Vehicles Make Appearance at this Year’s Comic-Con

KIA recently teamed up legendary comic book artist and DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee for a good cause. Jim Lee customized a KIA Sorento with a Justice League theme in front of a live audience to raise awareness for DC Entertainment’s “We Can Be Heroes” campaign.

The “We Can Be Heroes” campaign raises money for the Horn of Africa, an area facing the worst food crisis in six decades. The Justice League Sorento will be a part of a charity auction on eBay.

Batman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Superman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg are all displayed on the KIA Sorento that was designed by Jim Lee and created by West Coast Customs. The Justice League logo is placed on the front of the KIA Sorento’s hood.

The interior of the KIA Sorento features customized leather seats that represent each member of the Justice League. The seven-seat KIA Sorento has enough room for each members design to be on their own individual seat. The partnership with DC Entertainment also consisted of each character to be featured on their own customized Sorento.

Make sure to check out the KIA Sorento inventory at Jim Butler KIA!
