Washington White by Adam Griffiths

Product in stock

Price: $24.95


"Adam Griffiths creates deeply knotty comics. To read them is to unwind a bundle of block letters, bumpy, billowy artwork and sweeping invectives on society’s ills… …Griffiths has fearlessly tackled the Big Stuff—sex, politics, gender, race—through circuitous and speculative science fiction. Needless to say, Griffiths’s work is complicated and dense and us comics readers are better off for it." - The Comics Journal

In the District of Columbia, the President authorizes covert testing of a mind-control disease, a transgender drummer fights to rejoin her punk band, and a greedy developer is gentrifying the universe within the disease. Meanwhile, the black owner of a local tabloid, Washington White, threatens to expose the corruption—because his evil, white tycoon dad is the one behind it.

Washington White is also the true story of Adam Griffiths’ grandmother, Peggy Griffiths, a lawyer for the U.S. Civil Service Commission’s Appeals Review Board, best known for winning a landmark bias lawsuit against the federal government in 1977 for wrongfully being denied a promotion. The representation of institutionalized racism experienced by his grandmother is, to Adam Griffiths, the most important part of this work.

11" x 8.5". 288 pages. Full color.
