The Occupy Comics Collection Arrived Today – With a Bonus Comic By Amanda Palmer And David Mack

Occupy Comics, from Black Mask Studios, with its host of contributing artists and writers capturing some of the ways in which comics can protest inequalities in society, finally arrived in trade collection this week, complete with Alan Moore's long essay "Buster Brown at the Barricades", edited, in fact, by me: Hannah Means-Shannon.

But even I was surprised to find that the volume included bonus content in the form of a new comic by Amanda Palmer and David Mack (who also did the cover for the volume and currently has a Kickstarter running for his Muse: Life Drawings) and we can provide a preview of that Palmer and Mack comic here for you:
