Editorial Reviews

Hill is a talented illustrator, with a perspective that affords him a unique window into the events he is describing.
-Publishers Weekly

Essential reading ... Hill's work is at the forefront of creating accessible material about leftist tactics and strategies.
-Canadian Dimension

Hill's comic book truly does clarify "what taking on capitalism is all about" ... as with The 500 Years of Resistance Comic Book and in the wake of the different Occupy movements and the Idle No More Movement, Hill's graphic novel is certainly, once again, timely. -Canadian Literature

An important primer for the movement.
-The Public Archive

This intricately illustrated political graphic novel provides readers with a much-needed alternative perspective on the history and rise of capitalism and the rippling effects of globalization and escalating class warfare ... Hill has crafted an important commentary on capitalism, activism, and solidarity. -Broken Pencil
