ComicMix will be celebrating the 100 years of important work with a graphic novel, Mine!, A Comics Collection To Benefit Planned Parenthood. A-list names contributing to the must-read collection are Neil Gaiman (American Gods), Jill Thompson (Beasts of Burden), Yona Harvey (World of Wakanda), Gail Simone (Batgirl) , and Gerard Way (Doom Patrol).
Planned Parenthood has been the nation’s leading provider and advocate of high-quality, affordable health care for women, men, and young people. As the nation’s largest provider of sex education, Planned Parenthood organizations serve all patients with care and compassion, with respect and without any judgment. During these tough times, we need people who care passionately about helping others lead healthier lives.
Here are 5 reasons why we’re excited for Mine! on Kickstarter:
