THE ILLEGALISTS is a 140 page hardback colour Graphic Novel, drawn by New York Times Bestseller comics book artist and painter "Attila Futaki". Written by Stefan Vogel and Laura Pierce, coloured by Greg Guilhaumond and lettered by Todd Klein. (Inspired by Richard Parry's 'The Bonnot Gang')

These are the hardback copies that were produced as part of the Kickstarter campaign. 

The Story
Stefan Vogel first discovered ‘The illegalists’ a.k.a ‘The Bonnot Gang’ in London’s oldest radical bookstore ‘Housmans’ in 2009. What struck him most was, they weren’t just ‘criminals’, they were anarchists. They had strong anti-establishment beliefs, fighting low wages and the 12 hour work day; a lot of them were blacklisted for draft dodging and unable to work. Paris in 1911 was a city of riots, strikes and savage repression. These anarchists evolved into illegalists because they had no other choice - they stole to survive. He was reminded of the final scene from the film “I’m a fugitive from a chain gang” Where Paul Muni meets his girlfriend to tell her he’s leaving town, she asks ‘But how will you live? And as he slips into the darkness, unseen, he responds ‘I steal’.

The Book
This 140 page first edition hardback colour Graphic Novel is approximately 16.8cm x 26cm (6.6" x 10.25") and printed on high quality paper (157gsm matt art). This Limited Kickstarter Edition includes behind the scenes artwork, including concept art, layouts, pencils illustrating the creative process.
