On the centennial of the end of that war, the creators and publishers of the series have prepared a very special way for readers to join in honoring the heroes of “The Great War.”

Through the end of 2018, a portion of every purchase of The Jekyll Island Chronicles, whether in print or digital, will go toward helping complete the National WWI Memorial in Washington, DC.

This must-have birthday bundle takes you from the early black and white strips by Alan Martin and Jamie Hewlett; through to The Power of Tank GirlEverybody Loves Tank GirlTank Girl CariocaBad Wind Rising; the return of Jamie Hewlett on 21st Century Tank Girl; the epic Tank Girl trilogy of Two Girls One TankTank Girl Gold and World War Tank Girl by Alan Martin and artist Brett Parson; and two issues of the glorious The Wonderful World of Tank Girl.

Plus, a very special birthday requires something a little extra, and we present Tank Girl: Skidmarksavailable in digital for the first time, and a never-before-released, special edition of Tank Girl: Gold #2!

It’s gonna be one helluva’ ride!

Small Press Expo Launches a GoFundMe for Defend the 11

Last month, eleven members of the independent comics community and one publisher were served with a defamation lawsuit because of concerns they raised about a fellow creator’s alleged pattern of sexual misconduct.

Whit Taylor, Laura Knetzger, Josh O’Neill, Tom Kaczynski, Hazel Newlevant, Emma Louthan, Ben Passmore, Emi Gennis, Jordan Shiveley, Morgan Pielli, and Rob Clough, as well as the indie comics publisher Uncivilized Books, all need our help to defend themselves against these charges!

SPX has established the Defend The 11 legal aid fund to help these members of our creative community in their time of need. SPX is organizing this fund in consultation with the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, which brings legal and fundraising experience to the effort.

Cases like this can be costly and drag out for years reaching hundreds of thousands of dollars in bills. An amount of $20,000 was initially pledged to help with the defense and give these creators immediate access to legal representation. Most of that money has already been spent on legal bills.

SPX announced its intent to establish a legal aid fund in a September 1, 2018 joint statement with the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund’s new President, Christina Merkler. SPX’s annual comic arts festival takes place this weekend in Bethesda, Maryland. In addition to the GoFundMe campaign, those wishing to donate to the #Defendthe11 legal aid fund can do so in-person at the festival.

Aquaman is Joining Forces with the Ocean Conservancy

Ahead of the upcoming theatrical release of the highly anticipated superhero action adventure Aquaman, Warner Bros. has partnered with Ocean Conservancy to bring global awareness and inspire volunteerism to its International Coastal Cleanup on Saturday, September 15.

An icon for over 75 years, Aquaman is known by fans of DC Comics as the protector of the oceans and fierce guardian of the entire globe, both land and sea. To further that mission, Warner Bros. Pictures is encouraging movie fans to join volunteers throughout the U.S. and more than 100 countries as they come together to #BeAnOceanHero during the 2018 International Coastal Cleanup.

To aid in the clean-up efforts, the Studio will also collaborate with local and regional groups in coastal cities, including Los Angeles (Heal the Bay), New York (American Littoral Society), and San Diego (I Love a Clean San Diego), in support of the September 15 worldwide Coastal Cleanup.

Information on the global event and local volunteer cleanup locations can be found at its website.

Aquaman opens nationwide on Friday, December 21, 2018.
