This innovative, all-new nonfiction anthology collects powerful memoirs, profiles, and reportage from gifted, up-andcoming creators. Think ofSyncopatedas aNew Yorkerfor the comics set: a collection of stimulating, eye-opening pieces on subjects political, historical, artistic, and personal.Syncopatedwill take readers back in time to the glory days of old Coney Island and introduce them to fascinating personalities: graffiti artists, the inventor of the Dvorak keyboard, and psychologist Erik Eriksen. It will open their eyes to pieces of forgotten history, such as the Tulsa Race Riots of 1921and to new perspectives on critical current-day issues, such as the interrogation of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay. And it will immerse them in fascinating subcultures, such as the infamous chess players of New York City's Washington Square Park. Originally self-published to acclaim from comics fans, our relaunch of theSyncopatedanthology serieswithall-new materialis poised to bring this extraordinary work to a whole new audience.
