    Join author Benjamin Dickinson and illustrators Hunt Emerson and John Spelling on today, September 28, at Gnash Comics in Devon, England to celebrate the launch of Fight the Power!. Check the Gnash website for more details!

    Fight the Power! is a new kind of history book: a graphic narrative that explains how ordinary people have fought against oppression across time. Authors Sean Michael Wilson and Benjamin Dickson team up with illustrators Hunt Emerson, John Spelling, and Adam Pasion to show how this process has been played out again and again throughout history–and has slowly but surely led to hard-won rights for the people along the way. Focusing on the English-speaking nations, Wilson and Dickson chronicle the struggles of the Luddites and Swing Riots in the early 1800s, through the Irish Rebellions that lasted through 1922; from the suffragettes in 1918 to Rosa Parks and the bus boycott of the mid-1950s; from the trial of Nelson Mandela to the Occupy movement that has only just begun.
