    Default Red Quill Books Radical Comix

    I know this is a long shot, but is anyone here familiar with this by any chance?

    Catalogue - Red Quill Books

    This would be for a nine and a half year old boy who is comfortable with such graphic novels as Persepolis, Fahrenheit 451, and The City of Ember, but who does not need to look at oversexualized, objectified depictions of the female anatomy.

    I'm kind of stuck here because he pretty much only reads English beyond the "My aunt's red pen is under the table. I like weather, do you like weather?" level so there aren't exactly a lot of options for the Communist Manifesto and Capital.

    If you know of any others, please let me know!


    P.S. Yes, I know that would be communism; it was sort of the point.

    I'm not familiar with Red Quill, IEF, but if these don't suit, maybe the "For Beginners" series for philosophical reading?

    Or perhaps some of the selections from Microcosm Press:

    Thanks bunches.

    A bit more context:

    The Ghost of Karl Marx

    is on our shelves and he's ready for a bit more.

    I've read him some Lenin and a bit of What Is To Be Done

    I'm looking for a graphic novel he can read independently. We just don't think women are things. He's too young to have to look at but so much ugliness.

    I just saw some yesterday at a bookstore. I'm traveling right now, but I can send you some titles.

    Going back to the Red Quill Books - it looks like they would be the bridge between what you have and something for older readers, and as a comics reader, I grok your concern about women's bodies.

    Here's what I've found so far:

    Amazon allows you to peek at some of the pages (not perfect, but should give you some idea of the graphics):

    This link is to a thread in a socialism forum from a few years back. It contains links to reviews as well as other titles:

    And here's a link to "Das Kapital for Beginners", which should let you skim the graphics/text to see if it's a good fit:

    I can't wait to see what Mariam found.

    Thank you both so much. The "like" feature doesn't always work on my devices, so the "likes" were unavoidably detained, lol.

    Some more context is that our family as already Been There Done That Bought This T shirt and for some reason I can't even begin to understand, the girlses like it and the boyses don't even bother with it.

    ds9.5, the intended recipient of the graphic novels, just says "It's too old fashioned and it doesn't have enough pictures"

    :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

    Asynchronous development can be frustrating even though it is fun at times.

    But I probably shouldn't say that here because that would be communism.
