'Calexit' comic imagines dystopian future of an independent California

In writer Matteo Pizzolo’s new comic “Calexit,” a second-term autocratic president has called for the immediate deportation of all immigrants. In response, California secedes. But a civil war breaks out within the state, and parts of it are occupied by federal troops. A young Mexican immigrant named Zora flees Los Angeles and leads a resistance movement.
