Looking forward to sharing my work, focusing mostly on the non-fiction, activist comics. Particularly how my most recent “Wage Theft Comics” sticks a toe, or maybe even a whole leg, into the the realm of “social practice.”
A nice write-up on the Wage Theft Comic I did with Jeff Korgen. I especially like that the writer, John Atlas, went into the ways it was used in Houston. “…the comic has been an effective outreach tool. At Fe Y Justicia, workers participate in the actions and advocacy and have distributed the comics in neighborhoods, at community health fairs, and the center’s workshops. “We’ve even brought them to meetings with council members and the Mayor in advocating for consequences for companies with a documented record of wage theft.” (Check it out)
