The Center for Cartoon Studies was challenged by Vermont’s Secretary of State office and Vermont Humanities to create a graphic guide about the past, present, and promise of democracy and civics in our brave little state. Freedom and Unity is the answer to that challenge.

Here in Vermont, freedom isn’t a free-for-all and unity doesn’t mean uniformity. From Town Meetings to cooperatives, and all the way up to the state house, Vermont’s approach to democracy is by turns unique, varied, and inspired.

The Guide is available in print or as a free pdf.

  1. The stretchy guy is Plastic Man. His heyday was the 1940s and his original book folded in the early 1950s, but he’s been revived several times and has had his own TV cartoon show and a stint as a member of the Justice League of America, among other stuff.

  2. That’s Plastic Man. Gail Simone recently had a quite successful series starting him. He’s an interesting character, a former thug/gangster turned wise cracking hero. Definitely a DC Comics fan favorite.
