Parecomic book ready

Parecomic: the story of Michael Albert and Participatory Economics.

At last we have finished the comic book, at 201 pages which go into Michael Albert's life’s struggle as an activist reaching right back to the 1960's student demos and lifestyle rebellions, and taking in the development of the anti war movement, civil rights, the woman's movement, and the black panthers to the establishment of alternative media like South End Press and Znet itself.  Most importantly, of course we look at the participatory economics model in the last 2 chapters. The key thing to the whole book is to present this well worked out system, for the readers consideration, and to do so in an interesting narrative with appealing visuals.

It feels good to have got it done.

Now Michael himself will read it through for accuracy and anything that needs changed (he already checked it at the script) and a 10 page text section by Michael will be added to the back too. The last thing to be added will be Noam Chomsky's introduction, then it's off to the printers. The book will be available early next year from Seven Stories Press, NY.
