Reviews

"In the late '70s and early '80s we briefly had a comic voice that told our history (IWW, Spanish Civil War, Kronstadt), illustrated our culture (Brecht, communes, Yippies), and skewered our nemeses (Lenin, Mao, Trotsky), all with a large but necessary dose of self-deprecating humor. That was Anarchy Comics, and finally we can read it again!" --Josh MacPhee, founder, www.justseeds.org
"Anarchy Comics was an education I never got in school. I learned more deep truths about the way human megatribes operate (while at the same time being greatly amused by the superb art and writing) than from any textbook. Decades later, the insights I gleaned from these brilliant comics still affect the way I view global events." --Mark Frauenfelder, founder, boingboing.net
"The various parodies, jams, and educational comics are a wonderful assortment of styles and truly show how diverse an ideology anarchy can be among artists." --Chris Estey, KEXP
"Anarchy Comics contains work from some of the best underground-comic artists of the late twentieth century, given free rein to snipe at authority to their heart's content." --www.tcj.com
"Founder Jay Kinney and an international assembly of like-minded cartoonists filled the comics' pages with intelligent urgings for readers to think for themselves and eschew governmental systems that restrain the individual--and thus society at large--all while remaining entertaining, informative, and never preachy." --Publishers Weekly
