The stories of the hard-rock miners' shooting wars, young Elizabeth Gurly Flynn (the "Rebel Girl" of contemporary sheet music), the first sit-down strikes and Free Speech fights, Emma Goldman and the struggle for birth control access, the Pageant for Paterson orchestrated in Madison Square Garden, bohemian radicals John Reed and Louise Bryant, field-hand revolts and lumber workers' strikes, wartime witch hunts, government prosecutions and mob lynching, Mexican-American uprisings in Baja and Mexican peasant revolts led by Wobblies, hilarious and sentimental songs created and later revived all are here, and much more. The IWW is much written-about yet somehow elusive to scholars because of its mixed cultural and social character, The Wobblies presents the IWW whole, scripted and drawn by old-time and younger Wobbly artists among others including Carlos Cortez (former editor of the Industrial Worker), Harvey Pekar (author of American Splendor), Peter Kuper (current artist of Mad's Spy vs Spy), Sue Coe, Seth Tobocman, Chris Cardinale, Ryan Inzana, Spain Rodriques, Trina Robbins, Sharon Rudahl and the circle of artists for World War III Illustrated.
