13 Canadian creators have contributed to Panels for Primates, an online charity anthology that ends its run on June 1st.
SO, WHAT THE HECK IS PANELS FOR PRIMATES?
Panels for Primates is an ongoing, online charity anthology of primate comics that has been updating every Wednesday with new material at ACT-I-VATE (http://act-i-vate.com) since October of last year, all to benefit the Primate Rescue Center in Nicholasville, KY. Like the other content on the ACT-I-VATE webcomics site, the ever-growing Panels for Primates archive can be viewed absolutely free. The big difference is that Panels for Primates readers are encouraged to swing over to http://www.primaterescue.org/ and make a donation. Panels for Primates will finish its online run on June 1st, but a story by the final Canadian creator got posted this week.
HOW INTERNATIONAL IS IT?
The project features work by creators from Canada, the U.S., Israel, Britain, Mexico, Germany, and Indonesia.
