A magnum opus of political comics creator Seth Tobocman, "War in the Neighborhood" is 300 pages of New York history, punk rock, building occupations, community and resistance in stark woodcut-inspired black and white art. This second edition includes a new foreword by AK Thompson, as well as updated artist notes.

The book tells the story of the transition of the Lower East Side, one of Manhattan's last communities to face the steamroller of gentrification. Featuring a diversity of voices and experiences, Tobocman draws the social and political highlights of the era: ACT UP protests, homeless tent cities, punk rock in the park, and a neighborhood willing to fight for their right to housing with dignity.
