In response to the recent harassment of Marvel Comics writer Chelsea Cain, Jason Latour and Jason Aaron’s SOUTHERN BASTARDS #16 will feature a special variant cover to benefit charity. The proceeds raised by this variant will be split between the SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER and the ACLU. The variant pays homage to the final issue on Mockingbird with the “Ask Me About My Feminist Agenda” cover.
This special “DON’T BE A BASTARD” charity variant cover by series co-creator Latour is part of the ongoing “Roberta Tubb” variant series, showcasing SOUTHERN BASTARDS’ protagonist Roberta Tubb, interpreted by some of comics’ brightest artistic talents.
This is not the first time Latour and Aaron have announced a variant to benefit charity. The SOUTHERN BASTARDS #10 charity variant raised $18,000 for the victims of the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church shooting in Charleston, SC.
SOUTHERN BASTARDS #16 Cover B “Don’t Be a Bastard” by Latour will be available on Wednesday, January 11th.
