Karl Marx, moments before pulling out a pistol and overthrowing the photographer
In trying economic times, citizens of the world have traditionally turned to two things, manga and communism. This is well-noted by many prominent economists.
Now these two remedies come in one convenient package: Das Kapital, by the famously bushy Karl Marx, in a reworked manga form. It’s the heartwarming tale of the son of a cheese-factory-boss socialist, somewhat of a departure from the original work. Class struggle of course ensues. Available in Japanese only for now, there are plans for a translation into English.
Marx would no doubt be pleased if he were alive today. It is rumored he once told Friedrich Engels that manga is the Proletarians’ means of conquering the Bourgeois. So we’re off to a good start.
