In Tribespotting: Undercover Cult(ure) Stories, Harmon Leon dives directly into the eye of the tribal storm, drastically changing his look and attitude as he goes undercover in an exploration of tribal behavior and its many manifestations in modern culture. Employing the same inimitable style that has he honed while infiltrating extremist groups, Leon introduces readers to a series of vastly different tribes, including machine gun lovers and white supremacists, freegans and squatters, pickup artists and trophy bride seekers, and furries and viral video stars.
Some of these tribes engage in harmless, hobby-loving fellowship while others revolve around the adulation of charismatic celebrities. Some of these tribes strive to uplift the individual via religious enlightenment and a few are actually full-blown cults. But at the root of all these different tribes lies the same psychological need—the desire to be around like-minded people.
Gentleman cartoonist Keith Knight provides popular comics that enhance Leon’s enlightening narrative.
