Resistance Is (not) Futile

Since November, a website has been compiling anti-Trump cartoons and comics. Now the New Yorker’s art editor Françoise Mouly and her daughter, writer Nadja Spiegelman have edited the contributions for the protest comic named Resist!, which is being printed in a run of 55,000 copies, to be distributed for free in Washington D.C. on January 20th, Trump’s presidential inauguration day, and at the Women’s March the next day.

The website dedicated to the publication has been inviting submissions since November, and has received over 1,000 pieces of work. According to the website, the aim was to make the print version an all-women issue, though would remain open-minded and consider all submissions. It has been periodically publishing some of the submitted works on the site. Resist! will be published as a special issue of the tabloid newspaper Smoke Signal.
