THE GOOD FIGHT is a comics anthology taking a peaceful stand against racism and bigotry.

Originally a reaction to the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, where white nationalists protested the removal of Confederate statues, and to the ensuing attacks, which resulted in several injuries and the death of Heather Heyer, THE GOOD FIGHT has since evolved into a more timeless commentary on the ongoing struggle against hate. Because hate itself will adapt to survive.

The all-star roster of writers, artists, colorists, letterers and editors involved in THE GOOD FIGHT have graciously donated their time and creative energy to the project, resulting in more than 40 full color stories across a broad spectrum of genres.

Here is a sneak peek at some of the interior pages as we make progress in THE GOOD FIGHT

Backers will see their names printed in the THANK YOU section of the finished book.

A number of other rewards are available to project backers, including physical and digital copies of THE GOOD FIGHT.

And more...

Unfortunately, Kickstarter does not allow funds raised on the platform to be designated for charity; however, all post-campaign money raised through sales of THE GOOD FIGHT will be donated to The Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization "dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice for the most vulnerable members of our society. Using litigation, education, and other forms of advocacy, the SPLC works toward the day when the ideals of equal justice and equal opportunity will be a reality."

Risks and challenges

Anthologies have many moving parts, and the challenge lies in making sure all those parts move together. In order to make sure everything about this book, from inception to delivery or your rewards, comes together as it should, we've assembled a worthy team of comics professionals to guide The Good Fight across the finish line. Project manager Michael Perlman most recently shepherded the Image Comics anthology Where We Live, editor Danny Lore has worked on titles such as The Wilds for Black Mask Studios, and Kickstarter campaign manager Eric Palicki has crowdfunded such anthologies as This Nightmare Kills Fascists and All We Ever Wanted, both published by A Wave Blue World.
