The members of the Graphic History Collective (GHC) originally came together in 2009 to produce a historical comic book about May Day in Canada. With financial support from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the GHC planned to write a comic book that would be educational and inspirational for a cross-section of audiences. Over time new people joined the GHC, adding their skills and talents while sharing a love of history alongside a dedication to social and economic justice. The GHC continues to develop graphic history projects to present historical information about issues that remain important and relevant today. Members so far have included Mark Leier, Robin Folvik, Sean Carleton, Julia Smith, Sam Bradd, and Trevor McKilligan.
“The May Day Graphic History is a wonderful introduction to a major event in labor history and its significance, far too little known in North America.”
