The studio is known for series including BLACK (Kwanza Osajyefo, Tim Smith 3, Jamal Igle, Khary Randolph) The Wilds (Vita Ayala, Emily Pearson, Marissa Louise, Stelladia, Jim Campbell) X’ed (Tony Patrick, Ayhan Hayrula, Doug Garbark, Jim Campbell), and more.
Furthermore, the creative team behind BLACK is also selling shirts featuring Randolph’s cover art with 100% of proceeds also being directed to organizations fighting racism. Series creator, Osajyefo writes:
“This escalation of racists murdering black people isn’t new but our ability to document and fight it is. Allowing these injustices to continue with impunity is over.
I’ve seen your requests to open a shop and so I’ve quickly put this store together as some way to donate to programs helping protestors, journalists, and healthcare providers on the front lines being arrested for our response to the violence of systemic racism – so if this inspires you help support them, please do so.
100% of profits will go to designated organizations.”
To participate in the sale, make your way to Black Mask’s webstore. You can also donate directly to organizations supporting Black Lives Matter on the organization’s Carrd, and through our own compilation.
