It is being released in the US on August 10th.
Proceeds from every bottle sold go to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, a non-profit charitable organization founded in 1986 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of First Amendment rights for members of the comics community.
