Humanoids forthcoming graphic novel Makhno: Ukrainian Freedom Fighter by Philippe Thirault and Roberto Zaghi is out today, March 22nd, and a portion of the profits will be going to support the victims and survivors of the current Ukrainian conflict. Funds from the sale of the book will be donated to the Ukrainian nonprofit organization Razom, which supplies medical aid to Ukrainian fighters on the front lines.
“In early 20th century Ukraine, anarchist Nestor Makhno, the son of peasants, was among the most heroic and colorful figures of the Russian Revolution, encouraging his people to find and embrace social and economic self-determination. MAKHNO is the story of a military strategist who tirelessly defied both the Bolsheviks and the Germans to protect his homeland.”
“In the spirit of Nestor Ivanovich Makhno himself, a courageous freedom fighter who took more than once to the front lines of combat, Humanoids has chosen to donate to the organization working most directly with the freedom fighters of today,” – Humanoids Publisher Mark Waid.
