It’s not just a time capsule of radical ideas/stories for/about change. And, most importantly, its not just quick way for some people to make quick and easy money like some other comic publishers that shall remain nameless. DC. This is a book about one of the most culturally significant happenings in this country in a long time and whether you agree with its ideals or not makes it no less poignant.

    A fine job, releasing a comic based on Occupy almost TWO years after it shot its anger-and-rape-fueled load. Way to beclown yourselves, liberal dicktards.
