New Comic Book on Canadian Labour History

The Graphic History Collective (GHC) is pleased to announce the online publication of a new comic book on Canadian labour history:

The Days of Action: The Character of Class Struggle in 1990s Ontario, written by Doug Nesbitt and Sean Carleton, illustrated by Orion Keresztesi:

This comic is part of the Graphic History Project, which brings together writers and illustrators to produce, on a volunteer basis, a number of short graphic histories of resistance that illustrate the various ways peoples from a diversity of backgrounds and experiences have fought for economic and social justice. Comics are published on the Graphic History Collective's website and are available for free download:

Other comics currently available on the website explore such topics as the Black Panthers; the Knights of Labor; a socialist-feminist labour union; French feminist Suzanne Voilquin; and hobo, Wobbly, and Spanish Civil War veteran Bill Williamson. Forthcoming comics will examine Filipino women's experiences of Canada's Live-in Caregiver Program, and Indigenous long shore workers on Canada's West Coast, to name just a few. New submissions are always welcome.
