The second installment of The Antecedent is up. I’ve been working on spreading the word about this great effort – if you frequent a political or news site that you think would be interested in reading Bryant Paul Johnson’s work here please click through – in the extended version of this I’ve written out a short and sweet bit you can copy and paste to spread the word.
Bryant Paul Johnson is a very talented artist who creates a regular comic (comics are not just for kids!) called Teaching Baby Paranoia that wonderfully blends history, fiction and footnotes.
His new series The Antecedent looks at events in American history that eerily parallel current events today. The first installment “Two Fisted Shenanigans” tackled fiscal conflict of interest in the Washington administration – Jack Abramof was not the first scoundrel in the lobbies of government. The second, just posted installment “Seditious Acts” looks at the Alien & Sedition Act in the Adams Administration – the original Patriot Act in American history.
