David Brin’s new graphic novel Tinkerers


Posted: Nov 11, 2010

What if America lost its knack for making things? IEET Fellow David Brin’s new graphic novel Tinkerers is set in the year 2024, and combines art with history and tech to explore where the U.S. went wrong.

TinkerersMetalMiner magazine says:

The comic book envisions a dystopian future, painting America’s flailing manufacturing sector as both victim of and primary accomplice to its own demise. As much an economic tale as a moral one, TINKERERS’ authors clearly have the US industry’s failings in their crosshairs.
