generation gap - by bill porterMy old Genration Gap comic is going to be publish again. Since I posted this illustration on my blog in 2007 I have been approached by publishers around the world for the rights. The requests slowed down when I removed my old blog; the original track back source. Luckily there are a few respectful folks out there that properly cited my work allowing the German publisher, RAABE to find the image and trace it back to me. This time the comic will be published in a book for German primary and secondary school teachers called “RAAbits Realschule Sozialkunde/Politik”.
