9780970809292: Ignoring Binky : The Life and Times of Victor Evertor

A political graphic novel that tells the life story of Victor Evertor, head of EATU, a pollution-spewing, people-crunching multi-national and shows how this developmentally arrested corporate titan amalgamated power. A satirical treatment of the past six decades of American culture that connects the dots between personal pathology and the plight of the planet. Victor Evertor's dream is our nightmare.
