"...visually stunning, blood-boiling graphic outrage and calls-to-arms..."—Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing

 

"World War 3 has featured some of comix's greatest underground talents, from Peter Bagge and Art Spiegelman to Sue Coe and Sabrina Jones, not to mention Fly, Spain Rodriguez, and many more, and their work for WW3 was always their rawest, most unrestrained material.

I got my copy through the kickstarter, and have only gotten to it now because it is so huge and deliciously well-made that it had to wait until I could sit down with it at the office -- at 3lbs, it was too heavy to contemplate reading on the road or even on the bus. But I had a couple hours free yesterday and I dived into this, and when I came up for air, I wanted to burn something down..."—Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing

Paul Krassner On Harvey Milk, the Yippies, and Talking to Dolphins After Dropping Acid on Bedford & Bowery


"The Realist‘s motto– “irreverence is our only sacred cow” — seemed to extend to Krassner’s gigs as a standup comic and as a co-founder of the Yippies, who ran a 45-pound pig named Pegasus for President in 1968. After it ceased publication in 2001, Krassner — who by then had long since relocated to California — remained a prolific writer, garnering awards that included a 2004 Upton Sinclair Award for Freedom of Expression from the ACLU.

In his latest book, a slender 112-page paperback collection of articles titled Patty Hearst and the Twinkie Murders: A Tale of Two Trials, 82-year-old Krassner takes the stance of a serious personal journalist for outlets like the Berkeley Barb, The Nation and Playboy. Krassner answered B+B’s questions below from the home in Desert Hot Springs that he shares with Nancy Cain, whom he married many years ago on April Fool’s Day." —Mary Reinholz, Bedford & Bowery

This is Not a Photo Opportunity is "...a fun read."—New York Journal of Books

 "If you are a Banksy fan or at least interested in seeing a collection of his work. This Is Not a Photo Opportunity: The Street Art of Banksy will be a fun read.

For Banksy fans in the know this compact pictorial journey is distinctly delicious, a banquet of roaring images that span the early freehand technique of the 1990s to the more current stencils. These works scream clever, artistic, humorous, ironic, and socially relevant.

Given Banksy’s broad geographic canvas the opportunity to view the spectrum of his work is almost impossible. His works are not only far flung around the world, they also appear in unexpected places. There is no map for finding Banksy’s works. The adoring public can now turn to Martin Bull’s book, which provides an opportunity to view a portfolio of Banksy’s work. Bull’s categories include the following: early freehand, the ubiquitous Rat stencils, slogans revealing Banksy’s innate promotional sensibilities, modern life, play, societal commentary, and what are you looking at? —Rhonda Sturtz, New York Journal of Books

PM Press's Resident Librarian Annie Knight tackles J. Sakai’s Settlers

"The book illustrates the history and dynamics of white settlerism and its effect on worker unionism (and lack thereof) to such an undeniable depth that readers see clearly the mythology and propagandic hold imposed through what Sakai identifies as “Theirstory” or “imperialist Euro-Amerikan mis-history.” Historical accounts of U.S. imperialism going back to the beginnings of English settlerism are presented with ample primary source documentation and endnotes, and these events are compellingly explained to expose their lasting and multi-pronged impact. Emboldened summations provided throughout each chapter make it even easier for readers to understand the profoundness and reach of the history presented. Even more impactful is Sakai’s intermittent use of first-person pronouns that establishes his authority and intensely humanizes the very real impact of this history he shares."—Annie Knight, Resident Librarian
