Stephanie McMillan’s Minimum Security

Kyle Boggs:

Stephanie McMillan is the author of Minimum Security, a radical comic strip that approaches some of the most pressing issues of our time: the global environmental crisis, rampant consumerism, U.S. imperialism, and institutionalized gender and class inequalities. Much of McMillan’s work challenges readers to look beyond a system that does not serve the needs of people or the natural world. She says, “Beliefs are extremely tenacious and we’re trained from birth to believe in this system—that it’s the only possible way to live.”

See her graphic novel: “As the World Burns: 50 Simple Things You Can Do to Stay in Denial,” created with writer Derrick Jensen, 2007, Seven Stories Press.
