This actually is a true(ly) Power(ful) issue! At center stage are excellent, thought-provoking feature stories: on the implications of DNA testing to uncover hidden racial histories along with their implicit power and value structures by Mariah-Rose Marie; On the history of unions and their relation to class-consciousness by Sophie Yanow; on the inherent reveals that go along with cosplay and their unforseen predictive power by Nate Powell. Then there are an especially strong batch of strips by Michael DeForge, Ben Passmore, Joey Alison Sayers and Eric Haven – among others. And MUCH more – including an interview (in comics strip form) with Ta-Nehisi Coates. Also worth noting: This time around the masthead and contributor profiles are a double-page spread by Tom Scioli!
