How to Understand Iraqi Refugees in 20 Pages or Less

Sarah Glidden, author of How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less, is once again explaining the complexities of the world with a 20-page comic at Cartoon Movement about the lives of Iraqi refugees in Damascus. What's great about Glidden's comics is, even though everything is filtered through her particular visuals, they have a documentary feel to them, something both enriching and authentic. Glidden partnered with the Common Language Project for this comic, the group she shadowed for her upcoming book -- a bit of journalism about journalists. Color me excited.
