I Want YOU in U.S. Prison

I Want YOU in U.S. Prison http://bit.ly/2kWfyXY is a 20-page, digest size, B&W political activist comic written and illustrated by Kjartan Arnorsson. 

After a close encounter with a highway cop, Al accepts Karno’s offer to join him for a cold one. While the two enjoy some liquid delight Karno gives Al and earful about the prison industrial complex. Karno explains how the incarceration rate has steadily gone up while crime has gone down and how corporations are benefiting from this new form of slave labor. Karno goes on to enlighten Al on the numerous types of minor infractions that will now land a citizen in the big house in this land of the free! At the end of the comic there are references for continued reading on the subject and a one-page cartoon about an actual case that landed a guy in prison for ten years. 

Kjartan’s storytelling, art, and depth of knowledge on the subject are all equally impressive. The dark and alarming reality of I Want YOU in U.S. Prison is only palatable because of Kjartan’s outstanding ability to tell a story this bleak while maintain a sense of resolve to fight back. And his chops as an artist help a lot too!
