San Diego Comic Con 2018 Exclusive Cover - Ben Templesmith
Limited/Numbered Edition: 99 print run
The new comic CALEXIT: ALL SYSTEMS SAN DIEGO introduces readers to Emmie, a teenage skater who runs an indie record shop in an otherwise abandoned San Diego strip mall. When Homeland Security forces take over the strip mall to build an impromptu detention center for border-jumpers caught trying to escape from America into Mexico, Emmie decides to rise up and resist.
“ALL SYSTEMS SAN DIEGO is more about resistance than revolution. CALEXIT’s main ongoing comic is a high-octane war-story, so it was refreshing here to have the opportunity to slow things down and focus on characters who aren’t shooting their way through urban street warfare but instead are peacefully resisting and inspiring their neighbors to stand beside them against tyranny,” said Pizzolo.
Profits are being donated to San Diego Rapid Response Network, an organization dedicated to aiding immigrants and their families in the San Diego border region.
