Editorial Reviews


How far should protesters go to make their case? Is the news media biased because of corporate ownership? What is the dividing line between civil liberties and keeping the country safe? There are no easy answers in AMERICAN TERRORIST, nor should there be. The story, by Tyler and Wendy Chin-Tanner, illustrated by Andy MacDonald, has an unexpected ending that I hope the creative team leaves as is, rather than revisiting in a sequel. --The New York Times

9 1/2 Stars (out of 10)!
The mastery of this tale is how is amazingly entertainingly it interweaves fiction with current events, with political ideology, with a call to action that is absent in many mainstream political movements nowadays.
Wisely avoiding the trappings of just writing a political pamphlet, giving us an insider's point of view into a complex issue, an avoiding easy and feelgood resolutions at the end, I wish the comic book publishing landscape offered us more books like this.

Format: Paperback
I came across the artwork on the final day of NYC Comic Con, and I was moved by the cover. Journalists being limited to what they can print today, activists being seen as scum and the enemy of the people, and the news always trying to hush up major movements. The characters are ones that you can follow easily, the message is clear and concise, and overall moved me to reevaluate what I consume in terms of media and how I perceve the world around me, especially in these trying times where we are unable to make the decision of what to label the Manning's and Snowden's without a person behind a desk providing constant commentary.

Read this story. You won't be disappointed.

I loved this graphic novel. It's so relevent to what is happening today. I liked the way they brought the characters together & all the action happening throughout the story. This would make a great movie.

So much wrong is happening today, that maybe, just maybe we are already on the brink of American's taking action!
