Announcing fundraiser for legal defense of Portland protesters featuring an updated retelling of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, with Ebenezer Wheeler.
An updated retelling of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol follows Ebenezer Wheeler through the streets of Portland, Oregon. Read about Wheeler’s encounters with the ghost of his old partner, Jacob Adams, his tours through the city with the three spirits of Christmas, and how he gains a better understanding of how his greed harms others. This work of parody contains 12 illustrations with image descriptions.
Warehouse — A drawing of a set of double doors in black on a white background. An arched sign over the doors reads “Wheeler & Adams.” The first name is clear, but the second is faded.
All funds raised through this sale go to the Portland General Defense Community (aside from payment processing fees) to support protestors arrested during 2020 and 2021 whose legal challenges continue.
By using the classic Christmas tale, the creators reflect on the values of community and hope for Portland — the same values protestors brought to the George Floyd Uprising night after night in 2020 and 2021.
Meeting — A drawing of a man wrapped in chains with hovering over the floor on the left and a man sitting in a chair next to a heater on the right. The wall behind the two figures has cracks. The drawing is in white on a black background.
The novella is available for purchase as DRM-free PDF and EPUB files at this link (pdxgdc.gumroad.com/l/pdxxmascarol). All images have complete image descriptions and files have been tested with screen readers.
