History of SILK CHAINS
In 2003 SILK CHAINS was created as an open source zine/comic book adventure that was addressing politically charged scenarios around the planet. The comic was invented by a group of unknown activists in the midwest. Many of the first few issues have been lost through time and different artists and authors have credit content since its inception. Occupy Wall Street helped reignite energy into the zine and a handful of artists began working on new issues. The Hidden Ladder Collective was asked to take over the title
and William Hessian became the primary artist for the zine from 2011- ongoing. SILK CHAINS is traditionally short printed and free to copy without permission.
