Aftershock: Artists Respond to Disaster in Japan

Aftershock is a global response to the disasters of March 2011 in northeast Japan. Over 30 contributors from around the world have donated their artwork and stories to this compilation. The project has two purposes, the first of which is to act as an open letter of support and concern to the people of Japan. The second purpose is to offer physical relief in the means of monetary support. 100% of the proceeds from the book will be donated to relief efforts in the disaster struck areas.

The editor of the book, Adam Pasion, has set up a Kickstarter campaign to fund the printing of the comic. It’s a very worthy cause, so if you want to help Japan and get some great comics in the process, please consider donating:

My own humble effort to the anthology was a four page comic I wrote about my formative years, and how they related to Japan:

If you want to read the rest of it, you’ll have to buy the book! :-)

    Thanks for the interest! The project has been funded, and the editor is working with the printer now. He’s shooting to have it out by the end of September. I’ll update on this blog once it’s available, with details on where to purchase it.
