"In this anthology of seven comics essays, author and graphic novelist Nate Powell addresses living in an era of what he calls 'necessary protest.' Save It for Later: Promises, Parenthood, and the Urgency of Protest is Powell's reflection on witnessing the collapse of discourse in real time while drawing the award-winning trilogy March, written by Congressman John Lewis and Andrew Aydin, this generation's preeminent historical account of nonviolent revolution in the civil rights movement. Powell highlights both the danger of normalized paramilitary presence symbols in consumer pop culture, and the roles we play individually as we interact with our communities, families, and society at large."--Provided by publisher.

An echo chamber read that really resonates. It's easy to recognize the despair, concerns, and anger at the 2016 election of Donald Trump, his presidency, and the social rupture that he represents. Of particular interest to big ol' comic fan me were the chapters on the Wonder Woman TV show, cosplay
