Borinquen: An Anthology for Puerto Rico Kickstarting Now

In mid-September 2017, the island of Puerto Rico was ravaged by Hurricanes Irma and Maria. A new Kickstarter hopes to raise money for a comic anthology that will raise money to help benefit the victims of the devastation.

Borinquen: An Anthology for Puerto Rico is an anthology about Puerto Rico, its people, its history, and the perseverance shown in the face of such destruction. The goal of this anthology is to raise funds to help the people of Puerto Rico. Net proceeds will be donated to United for Puerto Rico.

Borinquen features 12 short stories by some of the best creators in the business, as well as names you’ve not heard of…yet. Our proud team includes:
