Summary, etc. note: Christie Pits is a graphic novel telling the incredible true history of when young Jewish and Italian immigrants squared off against Nazi-inspired thugs in the streets of Toronto. The story behind the 10,000 person race-riot for the soul of the great nation of Canada is written by Winnipeg lowlife and Amateur-Jewish-Cage-Fighting Sensation Jamie Michaels, and illustrated by the prodigious Doug Fedrau. This gritty ride through Spadina's immigrant community, tells authentic Canadian history with no holds barred. Each chapter follows an individual character, and the forces that brought them into the street on August 16th, 1933. These stories and characters thread together and intermingle to give readers the real feeling of a neighbourhood.
