Hard Core Pawn #1
Written and Drawn by Steve Lowes
A pawnographic collection of thought provoking short stories of racism, gender politics, capitalism, alcoholism, refugees, terrorism, democracy and, above all, humanity, told not through human characters but instead chess pieces.
"Hard-hitting and occasionally outrageously amusing...it just goes perfectly to show that politics and farce go hand-in-hand, but we all knew that right?" PAGE45.COM
Stevil's work is unashamedly political. He sees his art as a means of communication of information. Comics legend Jack Kirby once said "comics is journalism". But you won't find any superheroes here.
