Fringe comix archivist Ethan Persoff tells BoingBoing,
This is one of the rarest items we will ever offer, and one of the most historically significant.
Wallace produced a comic book in his bid for the
Governor's office in 1962. Includes a
blatant defense of segregation.
Takes jabs at the
NAACP, freedom workers, many others. It is very easy
to state the 60s might have been very different
without this booklet, as it was credited with helping
Wallace win the election and become Governor. This
booklet has since been heavily suppressed.
We offer it now for the first time ever since its
original printing over 45 years ago. Initial printing
was very scarce and limited in distribution itself, as
it was printed solely for white voters in Alabama USA.
Offered online in two presentations. One as issue 19
of Comics With Problems: Link
, the other as a stand-alone
. There are no black people in this comic.
Reader comment: Neil H. in Raleigh, NC says,
One thing that struck me about the Wallace text was how the writer actually called the civil rights activists "freedom riders." In the age of Karl Rove, lesson number one is to always "re-frame" the opponent, a la "mobile communist agitating defilers". Also, the whole comic was a bit light on the red-meat race-baiting. I'm sure that was taken care of at the citizen council meetings.
The Cobham catalog, exposed by The Intercept, features countless pages of surveillance gadgets sold to U.S. police to spy on American citizens: tiny black boxes with a big interest in you. In the creepily bland feature lists and nerdy product names is a whisper of a dark future; perhaps darker than anyone can imagine.
