Skybound Entertainment announced today that many of their comic book releases in May will feature new variant covers honoring Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month. Each of these covers will be penciled by creators of Asian or AAPI heritage.
All proceeds from the sales of these AAPI Heritage Month variant covers, will be donated to CCED (https://www.ccedla.org/), a Los Angeles-based volunteer organization that builds grassroots power through organizing, education, and mutual help.
“With the dramatic rise in hate crimes against the AAPI communities, Skybound decided to launch this new initiative to raise awareness of this epidemic and to raise money to support the excellent work that CCED is doing here in Los Angeles,” said Sean Mackiewicz, SVP/Editor-in-Chief, Skybound Entertainment. “We recognize that it isn’t enough for every single one of us at Skybound to simply oppose these racist actions – we must also take actions to support those in AAPI communities doing the work at a local level to affect meaningful change.”
We’ve got your FIRST look at one of these covers, THE WALKING DEAD DELUXE #14 by Ethan Young, right here:
We’ll be showing off the rest of the covers soon!

I really like this comics, and check all the comics with him, though I have too little time for this, as I get a lot of home assignments now. I was recommended this company https://www.nursingpaper.com/nursing-report-writing-service/ for my writing tasks, and perhaps, soon I’ll have more time for another things.
