Can policing be reformed? How do cops view themselves and their work? To tackle these questions, “I’m a Cop” directly examines the words of police leaders themselves. Damm’s innovative comics combine statements made by the heads of U.S. police unions and visual elements of 1950’s horror comic books. “I’m a Cop” showcases the ghoulish psychology of policing and challenges reader to see the real-life horror in what the police have been telling us all along.
"I’m a Cop” has been featured in The Washington Post, Boing Boing, and In These Times and named one of “The Best Comics of 2022” by The Comics Journal.
