Description:

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
