"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

Top Customer Reviews
I'm a huge fan of Kinney's. I subscribed to his "Gnosis" magazine, and his writing and art are always first-rate. While not an anarchist myself (just a knee-jerk lefty), I've learned a lot about anarchism from these strips and laughed a lot as well. The snark factor is high, and even 30 years later, a lot of these harangues are still completely germane. My kiddies were either unborn or in diapers when they were first published, but they now enjoy reading them as well. A welcome addition to my library.
I do NOT understand why the scanned pages from the comic are so small.
I have tried to view it on my Ipad and PC and there is much I can't even see.
