A light-hearted, humorous and extremely timely anthology of comics about
the leader of the opposition, whose startling rise to prominence has been the
defining story of 2017
Cartoonists’ response to the general election got an extraordinary amount of
coverage in 2017, with roundups in The Independent and other publications
The announcement of The Corbyn Comic Book gained an organic social media
reach of 40,000 within 48 hours through SelfMadeHero's Twitter and
Facebook accounts alone, and it has been shared through countless other
Pollsters called it a foregone conclusion. Columnists said Theresa May’s snap
general election wouldn’t just return her a thumping majority in the House of
Commons – it would plunge the opposition into existential crisis. For Labour
MPs, concerns about “job security” in an age of zero-hours contracts suddenly
felt uncomfortably close to home.
And then something happened. Momentum got to work. Grime4Corbyn gathered
steam. Clicktivists were transformed into door-knocking, flag-waving activists.
Soon, a familiar chant – “Oh, Jeremy Corbyn” – was reverberating around football
stadiums and venues across the country. All this while Theresa turned Maybot
and the Conservatives released a manifesto that looked bad for people and even
worse for animals.
Featuring work by many of the UK’s best-known cartoonists, including Martin
Rowson, Steve Bell and Stephen Collins, The Corbyn Comic Book captures the
qualities, quirks and flaws of a man whose startling rise to prominence has been
the defining story of 2017. He didn’t win, but he did cause a political earthquake.
Corbynmania is a thing now – and so is Comix4Corbyn
