Ssalefish Comics, in North Carolina has commissioned an exclusive variant cover by Richard Case of the new Alters comic series from AfterShock Comics, spotlighting Chalice, a transgender superhero. It also targets the controversial HB2 ruling in North Carolina that designates bathroom usage must match the gender on a person's birth certificate, with Chalice altering the signs to make them unisex.
One Ssalesfish customer didn't appreciate the cover, and she posted to the store's Facebook page for a signing event for the comic in store…
That event will see writer Paul Jenkins and Richard Case sign the comic at Ssalesfish on Saturday, 17th September from noon to 3pm
Ten percent of proceeds from the sale of the comic book will be donated to Equality NC, an organization fighting HB2.
