"Resistance to Ecocide" graphic novel (PRE-ORDER through December 31, 2022)
If you plan to buy the printed version, I'd appreciate if you'd pre-order it by December 31, so I know how many copies to order on its release date (Jan. 1, 2023). I should receive that first batch a week or two after that, and I'll ship them out to you as soon as they arrive.
I'll also release a pdf on March 1, 2023, for $5. It will be offered free starting April 22, 2023 (Earth Day).

The first edition of my fictional graphic novel was published in 2013 by Seven Stories Press. I drew the comic strips that comprised it for United Media and Universal Uclick from 2010-2012. The story evolved as events and people in real life impacted my views at the time. Recently I bought the rights back so I could change a few things and self-publish a new edition. (The changes didn't impact the plot, which remains the same). I also added a new Preface, and a sarcastic news feed that runs throughout.

FROM THE BACK COVER:
Capitalism is killing Earth. A small group of friends try to stop it, using a variety of tactics and strategies. They try whatever they can think of doing as a small group, wandering into dead ends as the system absorbs and deflects all their well-meaning attempts.
After many adventures they are finally forced to conclude that in order to stop omnicide, more than resistance is required. They must pursue something far more comprehensive: fundamental structural social change. With that sober realization, the small-group phase of their resistance comes to an end, and they face a new beginning.
A decade ago when this book first came out, the ruling class was floating geoengineering as a possible fix for global warming. Today they're trying to convince us that "green capitalism" is a reasonable approach. Either way, profit is prioritized over a living planet and the well-being of all. Unfortunately, the story of this group of friends remains even more urgently relevant today.
