Disaster and Resistance:  Comics and Landscapes for the 21st Century
 (book release from AK Press)

Presented by author Seth Tobocman (artist/activist) from New York City,
with music by Eric Blitz (drummer) and Steve Wishnia (guitarist)

Sunday July 20
7:30 to 8:30pm

Lucy Parsons Center
549 Columbus Avenue, Boston
(617) 267-6272


New York-based Seth Tobocman will offer a multimedia presentation of the
work in his new book, "Disaster and Resistance: Comics and Landscapes for
the 21st Century" (AK Press, 2008), and drummer Eric Blitz and guitarist
Steve Wishnia will provide music.

Seth is an artist and longtime activist and educator, as well as cofounder
of the comics zine "World War 3 Illustrated." In his new book, he outlines
pressing social and political struggles at the dawn of the twenty-first
century, from post 9-11 New York City to Israel and Palestine, to Iraq and
New Orleans.

Fans of his classic works, "You Don’t Have to Fuck People Over to Survive"
and "War in the Neighborhood," will see that his punch has not softened,
and his work continues to skewer the individuals and institutions wreaking
havoc across the globe today. In his bold comic style, Seth chronicles
events as they happen, musing not on the chaos of instability and fear but
on the struggle against it.
