Earlier this year, Electrical Workers (IBEWLocal 1245 in Vacaville, Calif., published First Day, a 20-page comic book detailing the history of Local 1245 and the labor movement, which is distributed to all new members. And so far, it is a big hit.

“It is the first thing people turn to when they get their orientation packets,” says Eric Wolfe, communications director at Local 1245.

Wolfe worked with artist Tom Christopher to put the comic book together, based on a history Wolfe did of the local.
