Roadstrips

The explosion of comic books and graphic novels into the mainstream has demonstrated their universal storytelling power. Roadstrips is a unique comics anthology that takes a fresh look at our definitions of America in an era of upheaval and widespread soul-searching. Like a new On the Road for the 21st century, Roadstrips explores our national psyche through the work of 22 top cartoonists—among them Peter Kuper, Gilbert Hernandez, Jessica Abel, Pete Bagge, Richard Sala, Brian Biggs, and Lloyd Dangle. Exploring identity on both a micro and a macro level, they illustrate today's post-modern patchwork with bilious narratives, thoughtful tales, and hilarious memoirs. Taken together, their powerful and thoughtful stories create a composite national portrait like few others.
