Corporate Crime Comics

1977-1980 / Kitchen Sink

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 leverages the freedoms forged by the underground comics movement to make a statement about corporate malfeasance and the corruption of lobbyists and the government. This includes pointing fingers and naming names instead of just general whining about corruption. Even thirty years later, there are important lessons to be learned from this candid comic book. The following stories are included in the two issues of Corporate Crime Comics:
