The BORDERx Anthology Project has attracted comic book artists from around the world to examine the issue of migrant detention and immigration policy. We are artists and writers united who are willing to stand in the face of oppression and to denounce it in words and pictures. We use comix as our medium and we have partnered with several organizations and individuals to put the current policies on record. By diving deep into the details, we seek to bring context and depth beyond the headlines. The anthology collects funds for the South Texas Human Rights Center who provide water stations, search and rescue as well as forensic recovery for migrants who take the treacherous journey to cross the border in search of a better life. We have also partnered with Project Amplify and Asylum Seekers Advocacy Program (ASAP) to bring sworn testimonies from migrants to the page. This full color comic anthology features talented artists both established and undiscovered.
