Today marks the 50th anniversary of Earth Day in the United States and the 30th anniversary of International Earth Day. To mark this milestone year Joe Corallo and Molly Jackson are marking this milestone with a new comics anthology to benefit environmental causes. Corallo and Jackson are the editors of 2017’s Eisner nominated (Best Short Story “Ethel Byrne”) and Ringo Award-winning Mine! anthology to benefit Planned Parenthood.
The new anthology will feature some familiar names from Mine! as well as new collaborators to tell stories about important environmentalists, the origins of Earth Day, small steps we can do to make our world a better place, as well as genre stories incorporating themes of environmental activism. All of the proceeds will be donated to the Natural Resources Defense Council. The NRDC is an international organization promoting environmental advocacy through science, litigation, and green business practices.
While more details were to be released, due to the uncertainty of publishing and release due to COVID-19 that has been delayed. Release of the graphic novel will like be in the fall.
Until then, check out the jam cover that is currently a work in progress featuring the art of Liana Kangas (She Said Destroy, Black AF) and Eisner Award winner Simon Bisley (Lobo, Judge Dredd).
