I’m thrilled to hear that my Popula essay “About Face” is an Ignatz Awards nominee for Outstanding Online Comic!

If you’re attending SPX in September, you may cast your votes for the Ignatz Awards on Saturday the 14th— winners will be announced at that evening’s Ignatz ceremony.

There’s such outstanding work among the nominees this year. Please check out everyone’s work— I’m so lucky to be able to make comics amidst all this talent and vision.

(theree seems to be a server problem with SPX/Ignatz site, so I’ll update this soon with proper links.)

Here’s a recent interview I did with The Laura Flanders Show on Free Speech TV about my comics essay “About Face”, which connects the rising normalization of fascist & paramilitary presence with a generation’s worth of civilian consumer style choices.

Thanks so much to Vanessa and Trevor over at Popula for giving this comic a good home!

"About Face"-- new comics essay at Popula!

I have a new comics essay up at Popula: “About Face”, which breaks down paramilitary influence on military regulation, and how those stylistic changes, crystallized as consumer style preferences, are strong indicators of successful normalization of modern fascist aesthetic and presence in the US.

Punisher skulls. Black and white flags. Beards, hats, and wraparound Oakleys. Totally blacked-out Dodge pickup trucks. This essay also functions as a post-script to my 2011 book Any Empire.

Popula is a great new indie publication, and I encourage you to subscribe and support it here. Thanks!
