Over the past month the events in Charlottesville, and what followed, have stirred up a lot of strong feeling in the United States and abroad.

One reaction was the #ComicHateNazis hashtag started by Gail Simone, showing comic book characters standing up to fascism, usually by socking Nazi villains in the jaw.

Another reaction was by Adam Ferris, who suggested on Twitter putting together a charity anthology, spotlighting stories designed to explore the issues and maybe even turn back the tide of hate.

I think it is a remarkably clever idea and a good cause.

I’m already thinking up some ideas of my own and I would encourage others to get involved.

The deadline for pitches and samples is on the 12th of September.
