The Beautiful Idea


by N.O. Bonzo
A truly beautiful exploration of the “beautiful idea” of anarchism in N.O. Bonzo’s first ever comic book. PM Press 2024

SKU: AD-5807 Categories: ,


In this wondrously illustrated first ever comic book from Portland, Oregon artist N.O. Bonzo two youths explore the beautiful idea of anarchism. The story follows their journey which begins with the children leaving behind the rubble of a failed State. As they wander away from a city in ruins they comes across a secluded cabin tucked away in what is left of an old-growth forest. The cabin is warmly inviting with an abundance of art, music, and large shelves brimming with anarchist literature. Immersing themselves in this rich environment, the young duo discover a world where history is alive and the future remains unwritten. Perhaps what matters most is “that we walk toward anarchy today, tomorrow, and always.”

This touching and inspiring comic is suitable for all ages (though very young readers may need help with some of the text).

18 pages printed in black and white on 80lb text with a beautiful heavyweight wrap-around natural cover printed in a forest green ink.
