Still have a question? Visit our Help Centre to find out more.

Have you been feeling powerless in the current political climate? With issues like the migrant crisis, Brexit, and Trump in the White House causing ever more division and fear, it's easy to feel like you can't do anything. Now Draw The Line shows you that anyone can make a difference, with small, easy to achieve actions that anyone can take, each beautifully illustrated by one of 114 comic artists.

All creator profits go to the charity Help Refugees



While the world's leaders and mainstream media talk of what divides us, Draw The Line sees artists from many different countries coming together with a single aim: to give you the information you need to make the world a better place. Illustrators from the US, Australia, Finland, every corner of the UK, Canada and Argentina provided images which are backed up with resources and data to help you explore more.

With contributions from whole host of creators such as Karrie Fransman, Hannah Berry, Steven Appleby, Lucy Knisely, Danny Noble and many more, Draw the Line brings together some of the most exciting voices in comics today, all working to find a way to make a difference. From simple actions that cost nothing, like signing a petition, to ambitious ones like running a march -- or even standing for election -- Draw The Line shows you how to get your voice heard in tough political times.


Many of them can be done on the cheap or for no money at all. Some are suitable for kids. They all have something in common: they are non-partisan steps that any citizen can take when they don't like the way the direction that politics is moving in.


Right now, we happen to be in a time when more right-wing politics have taken the front seat – but one of the driving principles behind this project has been that even if the reverse were true it would still provide a decent toolset for tackling injustice within society.


All pledgers will receive a copy of the book (digital download or physical hardback) made to Unbound's high specifications – a 144 page hardback in full-colour. To commemorate your pledge and provide a really special reminder of your contribution, your name will be included at the back of the book.


But that's not all: there's also the opportunity to get your hands on some truly unique pledge rewards, including your choice of prints from the book's illustrations, the chance to commission a bespoke image from one of many Draw The Line artists, and some very special one-off original artwork (when it's gone it's gone!).
