Second Avenue Caper: When Goodfellas, Divas, and Dealers Plotted Against the Plague

by Joyce Brabner Author and Mark Zingarelli Illustrator

A nonfiction graphic novel tale of a group of friends who smuggled an experimental AIDS drug from Mexico to the US in the early 1980s to try to save their dying friends. The story is a portrait of an era as well as a testament to a community's creativity and resourcefulness, and a touching story of people doing their best in the face of not being taken seriously by the medical establishment.
