Introducing ‘Parecomic’ – Help to get it Kickstarted!

Scottish comics writer Sean Michael Wilson has started work on an exciting new project, but for it to become a reality he’s looking for Kickstarter funding.

PARECOMIC is a graphic novel about something that affects us all: the system we live in – what’s wrong with it, and how we might be able change it for the better!

Written by Sean Michael Wilson, and drawn by Carl Thompson, PARECOMIC is about Michael Albert and his life’s struggle as a US left wing activist, reaching right back to the heady days of 1960’s student demos and lifestyle rebellions. From the development of the anti war movement, civil rights, the woman’s movement, and the black panthers to the establishment of alternative media like South End Press and Znet. PARECOMIC shows us Michael’s story, and at the same time the ideas and issues that influence both our society and the better alternative that we can build via the anarchist influenced system of participatory economics. Or PARECON for short – hence the title for our book, which rather started out as a joke – but has stuck: PARECOMIC.

  1. Thanks for this, lads and lassies,

    Actually the PARECOMIC kickstarter drive is going pretty well so far, we are bang on target and have passed the $1000 pledged mark already. But if we dont make the FULL target of $8000 in the 60 days time limit then it’s all lost (that is kickstarter’s rules) – so please consider supporting the book. Possibly at the $40 button as thats the level that also gets you the book as one of the ‘rewards’ for the support.

    The money is only a PLEDGE at first, it does not get taken out of your account now, its taken out about 2 or 3 months later, if the total target money is made (and nothing is taken out if the target is not reached). To pledge you just select an amount from the choices on the right side, and it processes it via amazon.

    Cheers!
    Sean and Carl
