First, thanks to Shane Bailey for the mention in his latest “Meanwhile” column! If anyone else out there wants to show off their comics’ speechifying, please be my guest.

As for this week … well, how about a little civil disobedience?

In the dystopian future of 2031, the United States is run by a mega-corporation called The Plex, and idealistic, pragmatic Reuben Flagg is Plexmall Chicago’s newest lawman.

American Flagg! is twenty-four years old, but some sentiments never go out of style.

[From “Hard Times, Conclusion,” American Flagg! #3, December 1983. Written and drawn by Howard Chaykin.]
