ABO is a collective of artists and activists who smashed together their love of comics and hatred of the prison industrial complex to help LGBTQ and HIV+ incarcerated people transcend their confinement and isolation. 

Our mission is to take a sledgehammer to the culture that treats humans as disposable, criminalizes the poor, and boasts a sense of justice at the expense of oppressed and vulnerable populations.

We do this by amplifying the voices of LGBTQ and HIV+ prisoners through the comix medium. Using the DIY ideology of punk-zine culture, our own experiences working in the comic book industry for over a decade and the philosophy of mutual support, we stand in solidarity with and give material aid to the most marginalized amongst us.

After covering the costs of publishing and keeping up with all our mail – currently our staff maintains correspondence with 75 LGBTQ people on the inside – 100% of our profits go back to incarcerated artists and organizations working towards prison abolition and queer advocacy.

Through the art form we love the most, we hope to proliferate the idea that a better world means redefining our concepts of justice and accountability without relying on cops, the state, or its sycophants to solve our interpersonal and societal issues by locking people in cages.
