Puerto Rico Strong to Benefit Hurricane Maria Victims
In September we reported about a comic anthology to raise money for those impacted by Hurricane Maria. Just over two months since the hurricane plowed through Puerto Rico with a destructive force that left island residents desperate for survival or forced to flee to the U.S. mainland, the island is still struggling to rebound. Yesterday, more details were announced as Lion Forge Comics has announced their commitment to relief efforts by publishing Puerto Rico Strong!
Puerto Rico Strong is a comics anthology that explores what it means to be Puerto Rican and the diversity that exists within that concept, from today’s most exciting Puerto Rican comics creators. All profits will go to towards Disaster Relief and Recovery Programs to Support Puerto Rico. Puerto Rico Strong is co-edited by Lion Forge’s own Desiree Rodriguez, alongside Marco Lopez, Neil Schwartz, and Derek Ruiz.
Puerto Rico Strong features art and writing by Rosa Colón, Vita Ayala, Naomi Franquiz, Javier Cruz Winnick, Sabrina Cintron, Tristan Tarwater, Fabian Nicieza, Joamette Gil, and many more!
Puerto Rico Strong will be released at finer comic shops and bookstores everywhere in March 2018.
