Reviews - What do customers think about Disaster and Resistance: Political Comics by Seth Tobocman?
A deep and compassionate look at the world around us from a smart and uncompromising artist! Aug 14, 2008
Fantastic artwork and right-on politics merge in this brilliant new book by the radical comic book rock star Seth Tobocman. Beginning with the April 2000 IMF/World Bank protests in DC and ending with Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, "Disaster and Resistance" covers a lot of critical global topics like 9/11, the occupation of Iraq, war profiteering, corporate globalization, gentrification, Israel and Palestine, global warming, the tsunami, and people's movements for land and dignity in Nigeria, Kenya, Indonesia and elsewhere. Certainly, this is a book every anti-authoritarian leftist will love. Even if you don't normally buy graphic books, I'd strongly encourage you to get this one. You won't regret it as it truly is superb, both politically and artistically. Simply put, this beautifully illustrated book (much of it in full color!) is essential reading for anti-war and global justice activists wanting to better understand current events!!!
