Just when we thought the exploitation of this medium by the left couldn't get worse, along comes another awful exploiter in Canada and abuses it by turning Karl Marx's propaganda into drawn pages
George Rigakos is taking the "anything but textbook" approach, creating a four-part comic book series on the Communist Manifesto, featuring original works by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.
"There is nothing like a comic book and graphic novel to grip a reader," said Rigakos, who plans to use the comic to teach political economy at Carleton University.
The first volume was released just over a week ago and the response has been overwhelming.
"We've barely started advertising and there have already been requests from England and Germany," said Rigakos, who is also head of the editorial collective for Red Quill Books, a new peer-reviewed publishing house. [...]
"The original work of Marx and Engels focused on the bourgeoisie, the proletariat and their heroes - the Communists - which will each constitute separate comic books in the series," he said
Oh god. Just what the world needs, communist propaganda in comics form, and wouldn't you know it, there's still Marxists and communists in Europe who're eating this up. Universities today can be some of the worst factories for this kind of terrible propaganda.
