Wildcat Anarchist Comics


1 in stock

Wildcat Anarchist Comics collects the drawings of Donald Rooum, mostly (but by no means entirely) from the long-running Wildcat cartoon series that has been published in Freedom newspaper since 1980. Rooum does not just purvey jokes but makes the drawings comical in themselves, ‘getting the humour in the line’, provoking laughter even in those who do not read the captions or speech balloons. The book also includes a lively autobiographical introduction that discusses Rooum’s role in the 1963 ‘Challenor case’.
