Anarchy Comics – Issue 1.

Originally published by Last Gasp Comix.

36 Pages – English. Some of it rhyming.

First published in 1978.

A collection of comic strips about anarchy and anarchism, including historical strips on Kronstadt, the Spanish Civil War anarchist air force(!), Nestor Makhno, humorous satire on modern daily life, the ubiquitous detourned advertisements and some stuff I don’t even know how to describe but I’m sure Robert Crumb would have liked it. Sadly the only issue in our archive and possibly the only issue produced.

Theses on Groucho Marxism by Bob Black.

Published by Bastard Press

English – 4 pages

Originally published circa 1980?

This brief essay places Bob Black’s idea of anarchism firmly in a Ludic rather than workerist tradition, more in common with Wilde than Wobblies. This view places Black – seen here at odds with both Capitalism and Communism – as a frontrunner in Post-Left anarchism, separating from the older, worker and working-class orientation of the red-and-black, but similarly steering clear of the trap of post-modern capitulation to Capitalism. It is Marxists and Marxism he attacks with this sly but exciting satire and his trademark word play, a brief but hilarious assault on the last agents of the Old Left.
