In honor of Veterans Day, IDW has announced that a portion of all proceeds for the Jekyll Island Chronicles graphic novels through the end of 2018 will be donated to the completion of the National World War I Memorial in Washington, DC. A press release provides the finer details:
With its second volume landing in bookstores everywhere this week, The Jekyll Island Chronicles is an award-winning series of alternate-history graphic novels, featuring an unlikely band of World War I veterans who continue to serve their country by battling an anarchist cabal in a post-war era of invention.
On the centennial of the end of that war, the creators and publishers of the series have prepared a very special way for readers to join in honoring the heroes of "The Great War."
Through the end of 2018, a portion of every purchase of The Jekyll Island Chronicles, whether in print or digital, will go toward helping complete the National WWI Memorial in Washington, DC.
Says Top Shelf Editor-in-Chief Chris Staros:
This Sunday marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. In all that time, there has never been a national memorial in our capital dedicated to the millions who served and sacrificed. So as The Jekyll Island Chronicles brings new light to that era, the Top Shelf/IDW publishing family is proud to assist.
