Green Day announces their new graphic novel, Last of the American Girls. UPDATE: The PC Police aren’t happy

Having tackled albums, singles, videos, tours, and stage musicals, Green Day’s latest multimedia project is a graphic novel named after a song from the 21st Century Breakdown album.

Coming October 29, Last of the American Girls, the novel will “[Celebrate] true rebel girls — girls who push back, girls who use their voice, girls who say no — Last of the American Girls takes on both the establishment and the upwardly mobile, espousing an infectious spirit that has never been more relevant.”

UPDATE: As well intentioned as this project may be, some have pointed out that it’s a little strange for four men to write a book about female empowerment.

Lisa Snapes of The Guardian isn’t happy. “You can’t help but wonder if Green Day thought this through. Surely no self-respecting rebellious woman would buy a book about ‘female empowerment’ by three washed-up punks.”

  • Washed up punks. Wow.

    This is why you should never help/advocate for anyone. The PC police will be all over it!
