A graphic novelist raises money for attacking capitalism

A writer named Stephanie McMillan is trying to brew up an graphic novel assault on capitalism by using the very concept she's allegedly against:
Capitalism Must Die! How to Kill Capitalism before it Kills Us will be a short (approximately 124 pages), simple book (with text, comics and illustrations) explaining capitalism: how it works, why it’s evil, and how to crush it. It’s very basic and accessible theory for the beginning revolutionary.
And how does she justify what she's setting out to do? She says at the end:
For anyone who has the impulse to say: "Isn't it hypocritical to be raising money when you're against capitalism?!?", I would like to point out that as long as we do live under capitalism, there is still rent to pay, food to buy, printers to pay, etc. I'm seeking subsistence and production costs only, and there's little danger of me using the money to open a book sweatshop where I put desperate writers and cartoonists to work on my assembly line, while I lie around sipping mojitos... Hm... wait a minute....can I do that?
Nope. If she thinks it's that easy, she should think again; it's not. I don't know if she's trying to market her project as a freebie, but if she thinks anybody who works hard to produce many of the everyday things we need in life is going to do it all for free, she's missing the boat. Even hard working leftists aren't going to totally do everything for free. And nobody with sense should have to contribute their hard earned money to someone with such delusional goals.

Yeesh. Yet another comic we don't need.
