RESIST! is a pro-female, anti-Trump cartoon anthology, created and published in time for the inauguration of President Trump on Friday. Created and organised by Francoise Mouly and Nadja Spiegelman with Desert Island Comics owner Gabe Fowler, it will be a free 40-page protest publication featuring mostly female comic book creators and cartoonists.
Cartoonists include Alison Bechdel, Lynda Barry, Emil Ferris and Roz Chast, but their open call for submissions means they will include some first-time published cartoonists, including those as young as 13. They have over a hundred female cartoons contributing in all – as well as a section in the back, the "man cave," and in between a page called "Gender Is Not Binary."
They printed 60,000 copies but have burnt through them all. So where can you find a copy?
Well, there are free copies now available at Desert Island Comics in Brooklyn.
RESIST! will be available, free, from these comic stores, bookstores and libraries from January 20th.
