Action Philosophers!

 

artwork by Ryan Dunlavey, written by Fred Van Lente

Action Philosophers details the lives and thoughts of history's greatest thinkers in a hip and humorous way that proves that philosophy can be for everyone!

Co-created with writer Fred Van Lente and self-published with the help of a grant from the Xeric Foundation, Action Philosophers has become our signature comic, blending low-brow humor with the comic medium's power to educate and entertain. The series ran for 9 issues and a deluxe collected edition was published by Dark Horse Comics in 2014. Action Philosophers was honored to be awarded as a "Great Graphic Novel For Teens" by the American Library Association in 2007.

 

Ryan and Fred recently ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to bring Action Philosophers back in print as a multi-volume, full color series with new material.
