This groundbreaking comic book was edited by Leonard Rifas and features stories about real crime cases and other unethical deeds committed by corporations across America. Corporate Crime Comics #2 looks a bit more at criminal and ethical malfeasance that occurred outside the corporate world than the first issue, including the inspiring story of "How U.C. Davis, A Land Grand College, Saved The Tomato." Other stories include: "Ad Infinitum Ad Nauseam!" "High Film Prices Got You Down?" "Topps Stays on Top of Gumcard Biz," "The J.P. Stevens Story," and "Genocide," among others. The artwork and writing is excellent throughout, featuring contributions from Larry Todd, Harry Driggs, Peter Poplaski, Trina Robbins, Jay Kinney, Sharon Kahn Rudahl, Greg Irons and Larry Rippee.

Corporate Crime Comics #2 leverages the freedoms forged by the underground comics movement to make a statement about corporate malfeasance and the corruption of lobbyists and the government. Even thirty-plus years later, there are important lessons to be learned from this candid comic book.

There are three printings of this comic book, all by Kitchen Sink. The 1st printing (10,000 copies) and 2nd printing (5,000 copies) have a $1.00 cover price, but the indicia on the inside front cover indicates what printing it is. The 3rd printing (5,000 copies) has a $1.25 cover price and also indicates its printing on the inside front cover. The 1st and 2nd printings are difficult to distinguish without access to the IFC.
