Stan Mack will bring his new book, Taxes, The Tea Party and Those Revolting Rebels: A History in Comics of the American Revolution and will be signing throughout the weekend at the NBM booth (#203)

A cartoonist de-mythologizes the Founding Fathers and makes them more ‘like us’”says The New York Times. Uncannily relevant to today’’s world. Learn about the original revolt against taxes: the Boston Tea Party, and the original Occupy movement: the Rebels in revolt against the status quo. A whimsical and informative pictorial history featuring a chubby, insecure King George III, rebellious and misunderstood colonists, loudmouthed and insensitive aristocrats, and more. Updated from the original Stan Mack’s Real Life American Revolution published by Avon books in 1994 .

Stan will be appearing at the NBM booth throughout the weekend (Booth #203) and can also be found on Saturday, October 13th at the 12:45 PM panel, Comics as Political Statement
 which will focus on everything from one-panel political cartoons to graphic novels that lead us to question our political mindsets, comics have always been an important part of the political sphere. Stan will join Eric Drooker (Flood, Blood Song), Miriam Libicki (jobnik!), and Ben Katchor (Julius Knipl, The Cardboard Valise), to discuss with Andrew Farago (Cartoon Art Museum) the ways in which their political attitudes affect their work and the ways they hope their work will affect the attitudes of others.
