Washington White by Adam Griffiths


In the District of Columbia, the President authorizes covert testing of a mind-control disease, a greedy developer gentrifies the universe within the disease, and the black owner of a local tabloid threatens to expose the corruption—because his evil, white tycoon dad is the one behind it.

Winner of the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo’s Cupcake Award, and Best of Show at Museum of Comics and Cartoon Art Festival, Adam Griffith’s Washington White is a spy thriller set in a future D.C. — and the true story of Adam Griffiths’ grandmother, Peggy Griffiths, a lawyer for the U.S. Civil Service Commission’s Appeals Review Board, best known for winning a landmark bias lawsuit against the federal government in 1977 for wrongfully being denied a promotion. In Washington White, bureaucrat Peggy Fables is denied promotion by the President who plans to install a supporter of the government’s mind-control drug program. The representation of institutionalized racism experienced by his grandmother is, to Adam Griffiths, the most important part of this work. Griffiths is an artist and activist, with a conscience and an agenda, on the rise.
