HELP US PRINT THIS CARTOON TO USE TO MAKE MONEY TO HELP REFUGEES
It costs money to keep ‘Threads: the Calais cartoon’ online, so part of this crowdfunder is to pay for you to view the comic that you have just read. But we also want to print thousands of physical copies of the comic. These will be distributed, free of charge, to individuals and grassroots community groups who are raising funds to go out to Europe to help refugees. A comic costs just less than 10p to print. It could be sold for £2. Your £10 donation will create £20o worth of fundraising materials. Help make a massive print run happen.

Red Rosa, the graphic biography of Rosa Luxemburg is my latest book, released by Verso in the UK and New York. Selected as a ‘graphic book of the year’ choice by both the Independent and Observer newspapers, it has been so successful that it sold out here in the UK on the day of its official launch. We also have Bump: how to make grow and birth a baby, a truly groundbreaking ‘choose your own adventure’ approach to fertility, pregnancy and birth, as well as British breastfeeding bestseller The Food of Love. And Threads is a piece of cartoon reportage from a very brief stint volunteering at the Calais ‘refugee camp’. I hope it helps raise awareness of a truly devastating humanitarian catastrophe.
