Drupal Association members fund grants that make connections all over the world.
Bringing some of the most recognized entertainment brands (Batman, Supeman) to Drupal is a big win for both sides. DC is looking to push the envelope in terms of the cataloging of their data and enabling community ownership and collaboration. Drupal will help DC with it's flexible extensible system and robust permissions allowing fans to participate and interact with some of their favorite characters.
DC Comics won a 2013 Blue Drop Award for Best B2C Website Built With Drupal.
Drupal was chosen for DC Comics due to its strong ability to manage taxonomies and allowing a diverse group of content creators to contribute content to the site.
The goal of this version of the DC Comics website was to create a more easily managed website that can be extended to be responsive as well as serve as a larger repo for all DC Comic data. These future phases are in the works and shouldbe coming later in 2013.
