Second Avenue Caper free pdf Winner of the 2015 Lambda Literary Award for Best LGBT Graphic NovelA "Village Voice" Best Graphic Novel of 2014 The renowned graphic-book author Joyce Brabner's "Second Avenue Caper" is the true story of a tight-knit group of artists and activists living in New York City in the early 1980s who found themselves on the front lines in the fight against AIDS.Struggling to understand the disease and how they could help, they made a deal with a bona fide goodfella, donned masterful disguises, piled into an "A-Team" van, and set off for the border, determined to save their bedridden friends by smuggling an experimental drug into the United States from Mexico.With their community in crisis and the world turned against them, this impassioned gang of misfits never gave up hope as they searched for ways to raise awareness and beat the plague. Fast-paced, poignant, and beautifully illustrated by the award-winning illustrator Mark Zingarelli, "Second Avenue Caper" is a heartfelt tribute to the generation that faced down AIDS.
