The Swan The Vulture #4
by Anna Vo
42p, b&w, 5.5"x8.5"
Vo writes with ferocity and clarity about trauma, sexual abuse, racism, mysogyny, the development of personal power, thwarting the toxicity of gentrification and the complicated act of struggling for social justice. This issue hits hard and interweaves its topics, being directly personal while speaking to a larger picture. The Swan The Vulture #4 takes stock of where energy is put and where power is drawn, the checks and balances of battling for a better world and the vision of what that might include. Top notch reading, highest recommends. -EF
