Southern Bastards Create Charity Variant to Benefit the Southern Poverty Law Center and ACLU

In response to the recent trend toward online harassment, Jason Latour and Jason Aaron’s Southern Bastards #16 issue will feature a special variant cover to benefit charity. The proceeds raised by this variant will be split between the Southern Poverty Law Center and the ACLU.

This special “Don’t Be a Bastard” charity variant cover by series co-creator Latour is part of the ongoing “Roberta Tubb” variant series, showcasing Southern Bastards’ protagonist Roberta Tubb, interpreted by some of comics’ brightest artistic talents.

This is not the first time Latour and Aaron have announced a variant to benefit charity. The Southern Bastards #10 charity variant raised $18,000 for the victims of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church shooting in Charleston, SC.

Southern Bastards is a bestselling, Eisner Award-winning comic series that has been praised for its honest portrayal of Southern culture.

Southern Bastards #16 Cover B “Don’t Be a Bastard” by Latour (Diamond Code NOV168192) will be available on Wednesday, January 11th.
