This Is What Democracy Looks Like, A Graphic Guide To Governance is a 32-page comic book created by The Center for Cartoon Studies (CCS). It is the result of a collaboration of educators and world-class cartoonists and is designed to help teachers who are working hard to prepare students to be empowered, informed, and civic-minded.
“It is hard to imagine a more important book to get in the hands of students young and old. Civics, democracy, and cartoons all in a non-partisan approach to raise people’s awareness of the real power that they and their communities hold. A funding opportunity that will pay dividends for years.” –Max Silverman, Executive Director, Center for Educational Leadership.
Contributing cartoonists includes Summer Pierre (Eisner-nominee and New Yorker contributor), Hallie Jay Pope (founder of The Graphic Advocacy Project), Nomi Kane '11 (The Nib contributor), publisher and cartoonist Kevin Czap, and James Sturm (author of the graphic novels Off Season and Market Day). Lead cartoonist, CCS graduate Dan Nott ‘18, is currently writing and drawing a book about infrastructure called Hidden Systems for Random House Graphic.
