Here’s a plug for the new comics anthology collaboration between the ICA’s Comica festival and the youth initiative organisation, Ctrl. Alt. Shift. As you can see from the press release below, some great names in the field and beyond were involved, focusing on political issues of corruption around the world.
I worked on a story called “Not One Minute” with writer and artist Ben Dickson, a story detailing governmental corruption against students in Colombian universities. Check it out!
Experimental youth initiative Ctrl.Alt.Shift presents Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption, a new comic book anthology featuring well respected international comic artists and writers who have specially created stories to the theme of corruption. Contributors include names such as Dave McKean, Pat Mills, Aleksandar Zograf, Dan Goldman, Fredrik Stromberg, Janek Koza, Lee O’Connor and Paul O’Connell, as well as contemporary music names such as V V Brown and Lightspeed Champion both of whom are big comics fans and make comics themselves. This eclectic mix of politicized comic book and graphic novel work has been created in a bid to politicise a new generation of activists through the medium of popular comic culture.
For further information regarding the book please visit: www.ctrlaltshift.co.uk/unmaskscorruption.
The Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption anthology is available to buy for £4.99 at www.ctrlaltshift.co.uk/unmaskscorruption and all good comic retailers from November. Profits from the 5,000 copies of the comic book will go to Ctrl.Alt.Shift.

In the series “Kinetic,” the title character was a comic hero within the story. What did that character look like? I’m trying to find out so I can make a paper model or the character.
