The children are our future, and we must teach them well.
That just got a lot easier thanks to a new children’s comic about Gritty. From Twitter accounts to real-life appearances at anti-alt-right protests, Gritty, the surreal orange-furred mascot of the NHL’s Philadelphia Flyers, has fast become a political meme with a life of its own. So it’s no surprise he’s inspired some, um, educational material.
The “book” is a four-panel comic created by illustrator Conal Pierse. He has offered the whole thing, including a print-resolution version for physical copies, for free via Twitter. It’s a succinct yet wholesome adventure for freedom, featuring cameos from a Nazi and a Pepe the Frog-look-a-like.
