“Extraction! : Comix Reportage” About Abusive Canadian Mining Practices in 2nd Edition

EXTRACTION!: Comix Reportage is Ad Astra’s next publication. As a micro-press publisher, Ad Astra is a publisher specializing in comic books with social justice themes. They use crowdfunding to finance printing costs by offering readers an opportunity to pre-purchase the book before it goes to print.  I’m obviously biased being its original co-editor with Frédéric Dubois and Marc Tessier, as well as its 1st edition publisher, but I recommend you get yourself a copy. The 1st edition was winner of the 2008 Expozine Alternative Press Award for Best English Book and  sold-out quickly. “Divided into four chapters, each one dedicated to...

Extraction! Comix Reportage: mixing comics and journalism about mining

[Montréal, Québec, Canada 1°C] New technologies and new forms of web distribution open up possibilities to republish past works to new audiences and give them new lives. Below is a book that was published back in 2007 at a print-run of only 500 copies. They sold like hotcakes and quickly disappeared from bookshelves, bookfairs and are now occasionally seen in second-hand bookstore windows. A friend of mine just send a link to a new comic he published using Issuu to render it available online. It gave me the idea of rescucitating old publications that were send to obscurity long before...

Shubhranshu Choudhary comes to 2010 MediaRDV

[Montréal, Québec, Canada 23°C] Participants at the 2010 Citizen Media Rendez-Vous are lucky that Shubhranshu Choudhary is spending 3 months in San Francisco this summer because it allowed us to invite him to be a panelist. He is from the Indian region of Chhattisgarh where tribal languages flourish. Poverty is high despite the abundance of minerals in the region and so is illiteracy. Shubhranshu will come to Montréal to share his perspective based on his experience establishing a citizen journalism initiative that allows remote communities (7 million people) to use CGNet Swara, a cell phone platform inform each other in...
