A furious escaped lab bunny vandalizes symbols of corporate greed while arguing political theory with a pigtailed eco-warrior, as Zen Pug observes it all in blissful detachment. They drag her pop culture-bedazzled brother, his anarchist boyfriend and other characters kicking and screaming into the struggle against the rapacious thugs and theocratic wingnuts ruling imperial America. Stephanie McMillan's comics, deploying an engaging visual style that draws on everything from folk art to anime, confront the insanity and heartlessness of global capitalism and war with sharp, compassionate humor and a defiant spirit of hope.

-Marc Mason, Moviepoopshoot.com.
"Smart and informed as well as outraged and uncompromising." -The Onion
