SILVER PHOENIX ENTERTAINMENT TO RELEASE HISTORY OF THE POLICE
“The Most Important Comic You Won’t Be Able To Buy”
(OAK PARK, ILLINOIS) Comics publisher Charles D. Moisant announced his plans to release The History of the Police, the first in a series of comic publications that detail the history of local law enforcement from the Nineteenth Century to the present. The proposed graphic series is produced with the cooperation of Sgt. Joseph Fitzgerald, Phd., of the Berwyn (IL) Police Department, novelist Brian K. Morris, and interior artist Jeffrey Moy.
“The story will be told,” Moisant said, “through the eyes of a multi-cultural immigrant family. We recognize that the history of law enforcement is riddled with unfortunate incidents of violent suppression and corruption. But the majority of police have always been hard-working men and women who want to protect and serve humanity. That is who we celebrate with this comic book.”
The primary goal of the comic is to serve as a tool to create a dialogue between the Police and the civilian population. To this end, Moisant intends to distribute at least one million copies of the comic book to schools, libraries, prisons, and to every police station that would like a copy. The first wave of this distribution will occur on Free Comic Book Day on May X, 2017, thanks to Diamond Distribution, the largest comic book distributor in North America, following a brief crowdfunding campaign.
Jeffrey Moy is an artist most famous for his work on DC Comics’
Planned sequels to the first issue, entitled “Look Behind the Badge,” include stories that deal with civil liberties in a post-Miranda Ruling country and how law enforcement operates after 9-11. Moisant says, “I’m proud to help create a comic book that could promote a greater understanding of the Police in the communities they serve. I’m further gratified to be able to get this information into the hands that can use it the most at no cost to them. Besides, it’s a good story, one worth telling.”
