Occupy Comics is a project for comics artists and writers who want to support the Occupy Wall Street protests. It will be partly art and stories related to the protest, but largely a fundraising effort to support the occupiers with amenities (bathrooms, winter clothing, etc).
Already a very impressive roster of pros have joined the project, so expect the first official announcements during NYCC. To learn more visit www.occupycomics.com
