Description

Two of America's most talented activists team up to deliver a bold and hilarious satire of modern environmental policy in this fully illustrated graphic novel. The U.S. government gives robot machines from space permission to eat the earth in exchange for bricks of gold. A one-eyed bunny rescues his friends from a corporate animal-testing laboratory. And two little girls figure out the secret to saving the world from both of its enemies (and it isn't by using energy-efficient light bulbs or biodiesel fuel). As the World Burns will inspire you to do whatever it takes to stop ecocide before it's too late.

Review quote

"Razor-sharp critique packaged as cute-kid-and-funny-animal cartoon." --Booklist

McMillan's expressive style, pared down to the basics and intensified over the years, allows for instant communication of thoughtful rage ... a fast-moving page-turner." --The Comics Journal

In As The World Burns, satire bites through the sharp vampire-pointed teeth of McMillan's corporate overlords ... initially, the graphic novel's underlying message may seem heavy-handed and preachy, but the writing is so acutely entertaining that the message doesn't feel force-fed ... Plus, the drawings are so darn cute. --Palm Beach New Times
