Now, #CalExit is more than just a proposed ballot measure…it is a comic book aimed at the safety pin set!

The new comic book series from Black Mask Studios portrays California leading the resistance against America’s Commander-in-Chief.

It’s about that hope and inclusion and also the challenges of finding solidarity among a diverse group but figuring it out and supporting one another,” says [#Calexit creator Matteo] Pizzolo.

“Even if California split off, we’d still need to work together across cultural and political lines, probably even moreso. We’re not going to solve the problems we face alone. There’s a darkness to the situation and the world, but it’s a story of hope.”

The premise of the series is based an a heady mixture of fantasy, delusion, and fake news.

What if a fascist, autocratic President took over the United States? And what if that President lost California, the sixth largest economy on Earth, by nearly 2-to-1…a margin of almost 3 1/2 million votes?

What if the day after that President took power, the largest mass demonstration in history occurred, and the state with the largest turnout was California. And then, the following week, two of the largest international airports in the world, California’s LAX and SFO, were blockaded by protesters? What if California refused to be ruled?

…In CALEXIT, the citizens of California will struggle to seize power back from an autocratic government. The ongoing series tells the story of Jamil, a 25-year old courier (aka smuggler), and Zora, a 27-year old leader in the Pacific Coast Sister Cities Resistance, who escape together from a prison camp in Occupied Los Angeles, where martial law has been in place for the past year — ever since America’s demagogue President signed an executive order to deport all immigrants, and California responded by proclaiming itself a Sanctuary State.

Each issue of CALEXIT will also include non-fiction material about local sustainability and grassroots campaigning for 2018 elections.

The first issue will be out in May of this year, though no word is available on if it can be ordered on our convenient Amazon link. I am sure Legal Insurrection readers will want to own their own copy.

In a nutshell, the hero is “The Resistance”. The villain? A fascist who lost the popular vote in California. I am sure any resemblance to President Donald J. Trump is purely coincidental.
