Image Comics Is Raising Money for Planned Parenthood With Women’s History Month Variant Covers
Each day, more people seem to be joining the fight against Trump’s administration. For one, artist David Mack is selling a gorgeous watercolor print of Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel with the proceed benefiting the ACLU. Now, Image Comics is stepping up with a series of variant covers to benefit Planned Parenthood.
The company is celebrating its 25th anniversary by releasing themed variants each month. For March, their covers will celebrate Women’s History Month with all of the proceeds going to Planned Parenthood. The covers will celebrate women in comics and their achievements while highlighting the company’s penchant for pushing companies. Expect variant covers for the likes of Motor Crush, Rat Queens, Moonshine and more.
“Many of Image Comics’ staff—myself included—and an ever-growing catalog of some of the most talented writers and artists in the industry, feel strongly about supporting women’s reproductive rights,” Corey Murphy, Director of Sales, said in a statement.
“Women have come a long way in this country, and the progress that’s been made is in part due to the efforts Planned Parenthood has made in sex education and affordable, preventative healthcare. I’m extremely proud to be a part of a company that’s unafraid to take a stance in supporting a non-profit that’s recently been under fire. This month we celebrate Women’s History, the strides the women have made in the comics industry, and the difference that everyone—male and female—has made by coming together in spreading equality.”
The celebration kicks off with Rat Queens #1 and Royal City #1 hitting stands on March 1.
