Harvey Pekar Loses Himself In This Sixties Graphic History

This collection from comics superstar Harvey Pekar is an intimate document of sixties radicalism. The first of the two dozen stories details the rocket-fast rise and (literally) fiery crash, once the Weathermen broke off on their own, of the titular sixties antiwar group; the brisk, brief remaining chapters report fascinating first-person accounts of receiving draft letters and beatdowns from cops.
