Image Expands Planned Parenthood Cover Initiative

Last week Image Comics announced that several of its creator-owned titles will release variant covers in support of the besieged Planned Parenthood organization.

Yesterday, the publisher expanded that initiative to include four more titles: Low, Moonshine, Magdalena, and She-Wolf.

The move comes in the wake of a concerted effort by state and national GOP legislators moving to strip federal funding from the organization.

On Thursday, the US House of Representatives voted 230-188 to rescind a restriction that bans states from denying federal funding to organizations which provide abortion services.

A number of Image creators have jumped onboard the initiative, which comes during he publisher’s ongoing celebration of its 25th anniversary.
