 LIES MY TEACHER TOLD ME!  Adapted by Nate Powell

 

A full comics adaptation of the late, great James Loewen's influential history book about history textbooks. It corrects many misconceptions and falsehoods commonly accepted in American history, while outlining how these errors, myths, and lies have found themselves embedded in our historical understanding and education—and a path to fixing what our miseducation has broken, developing critical thinking skills, empathy, and room for contradiction along the way. Guaranteed to be banned in multiple states!

Quadruped Quorum by Mark Dippel

In 2022, I created “Quadruped Quorum” with the intention of it being an online supplemental part to my self-released album entitled “Nine-Track Minded.”  It was largely used as an advertising tool, mostly just to continue listeners’ engagement with the music in a unique way.  However, the more I worked on the comic strip, the more ideas I started developing, and the more fun I was having with it.  Eventually, it became my primary art project, separate from its connection to my music.  At that point, I was then able to discover its proper voice and identity.

The two main characters are based on my pets, Ghost the dog, and her big brother, Goblin the cat.  All of the comics are based on some degree of truth, typically the joking conversations between my wife and me, when we observe the animals’ humorous and eccentric behavior.  There is also still a lot of music-related material involved in their discussions and their adventures, because music has always been such a large part of our lives, just like the pets themselves.  It’s truly a combination of everything that is most important to me.

“Quadruped Quorum Book One” is a self-published paperback collection of every comic I posted online from May 2022 through November 2023, and also includes several unreleased comics that are exclusive to the book.
