Paul Buhle, aged New Leftist and editor of the comic Radical Jesus: a Graphic History of Faith, is still surprised to remember that he was an officer of the Christian Youth Fellowship, circa 1962.

Tom Hayden

Tom Hayden was a leader of the student, civil rights, peace and environmental movements of the 1960s. He served 18 years in the California legislature, where he chaired labor, higher education and natural resources committees. He is the author and editor of twenty books, including the recently published "Inspiring Participatory Democracy: Student Movements from Port Huron to Today" (Paradigm, 2012). He has taught most recently at UCLA, Scripps College, Pitzer College, Occidental College, and the Harvard Institute of Politics.

Ellis Rosen

Ellis J. Rosen is a contributor, along with Sam Marlow, to the Eisner-nominated graphic anthology "Yiddishkeit: Jewish Vernacular and the New Land," edited by Harvey Pekar and Paul Buhle. He has just completed work which will be seen in the forthcoming movie "Diving Normal," based on the award-winning play by Ashlin Halfnight. He has done several comic adaptations (with Marlow) of speeches by Tom Hayden. His satiric look at contemporary life, "The Shadow's Nose," as well as his other works, are available for your enjoyment at ellisrosen.com.
