ORDER HERE. SHIPS NOW. A 24-page, two-color comics journalism collection of oral histories from Vienna’s faded fashion industry. VOLKSMODE is a new addition to Our Fashion Year, a comics journalism exploration of international women’s labor that ran monthly on Truthout. Unraveling the threads that weave together fast fashion and human trafficking, Our Fashion Year asks why and how the flow of capital particularly disadvantages women, throughout the world. In Austria, we were interested in asking this question of men, in a country neither currently known as a garment producer nor a fashion capital, but which is nonetheless subject to the same global forces as workers in Phnom Penh and models in New York City. From The Ladydrawers, in this case, Simon H., Delia Jean, and Anne Elizabeth Moore. Riso printing by Issue Press in Grand Rapids, MI.

The excessively delayed but comprehensively Illustrated Third Edition of the Manifesti of Radical Literature is an anarchist style guide for cultural producers of exactly 88 pages, with chapters on such foundational political acts as throwing away one’s dictionary, creating one’s own system of punctuation, refusing to abide by the language imposed upon us by corporate entities, the lures and conveniences of communicating in the digital age, and reconsidering the very conditions under which the laws by which we are expected to abide were crafted. Also, it is funny and of a pleasing form and light but increasing heft, perfect for spiriting away in one’s back pocket for an evening of street stenciling or shopdropping.
This Questionably Diagrammed Edition features slightly larger print, updated texts, an introduction and a postface by radical literarists Liz Mason and Mikki Halpin, an entirely new chapter on navigating integrity in online platforms, and several medical illustrations of little sense and less value, by the author who, technically speaking, is a writer. Written and illustrated by Anne Elizabeth Moore.
First Edition: October 2007. Second edition: October 2010. Third Edition: March 2014.

The slightly expanded Second Edition (featuring: the correct spellings of many words!) was a Spring 2011 Pick at Portland’s In Other Words Feminist Community Center. Don’t believe it? Also, Lupe Fiasco picked it up, and liked it. Proof.
Women’s Comics Anthology is a comics anthology that provides content analysis on the most popular comics anthologies currently available, with an aim toward determining the necessity and/or viability of traditional women’s comics anthologies. Co-edited by James Payne and Anne Elizabeth Moore, and featuring contributions by contemporary women, men, and transgendered cartoonists, the Women’s Comics Anthology is a vital but funny look at the big business of cartooning.
