This controversial comic series about terrorism and identity politics predicts a dystopia that not everyone is willing to agree with. We look at the angry arguments from both Howard Chaykin and his detractors about whether this is artistic expression or just shock value. And… we ask what no one else seems to address. Does Chaykin’s story successfully meet its intended goal?
