"Cats of Maywood"-Winner of three 2019 Pollie awards

Cats of Maywood Volume 1 (front and back sides)

Laborers Local 300 asked us to help elect their reform slate for City Council in scandal plagued Maywood, California. Our team came up with a series of comics to highlight the corruption. Voters responded and elected our slate on November 6, 2018.  The dimensions of The Cats of Maywood four volume series are 11 x 17 one fold. This image is of the front and back sides of Volume 1.  In this series, with the exception of the Volume number, the front and back remained the same.

Cats of Maywood Volume 1 (centerfold)

Volume 1 looks at the DA's raid of city hall, a garbage crisis and the mayor's conviction on animal cruelty. 

Cats of Maywood Volume 2 (centerfold)

image45

Volume 2 points out the absurdity of the city allocating Bingo profits to a clown, a whopping $15 million debt and hiring a pal of the mayor, with no experience, to be city manager.

Cats of Maywood Volume 3 (centerfold)

image46

The saga of corruption continues in Volume 3.  The link of corruption to the $15 million debt, thirteen city contractors under investigation, and the DA's seizure of evidence at city hall.

Cats of Maywood Volume 4 (centerfold)

image47

Volume 4 features a City Council Member resigning in a plea deal, the ex-City Manager-pal of mayor-facing sexual harassment charges, and the mayor blaming his animal abuse conviction on a political witch hunt. We are not making any of this up!
