As reported by Forbes, “A portion of the comic book’s sales will benefit two charities, RAICES, a nonprofit that serves immigrant children, families and refugees, and the USO, which supports military service members and military families. The comic’s official website notes that “Neither Raices, USO, nor Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez have endorsed or are directly affiliated with this project or Devil’s Due Comics.””
