The Comic that can actually Change the World

With all due respect to the Spider-Men and Batmans of the world, here's a comic that MATTERS.

Writer Joshua Dysart spent five days in Iraq with the United Nations' World Food Program, telling the crucial story of the horrors of Da'esh, and the life-saving work that the WFP is doing in feeding hundreds of thousands of refugees from the bloody conflict. His research has resulted in a 35-page comic that's serialized at Huffington Post, and you can reach the first chapter here.

For some of the behind-the-scenes and Josh's thought process, we have the Newsarama article here.

Please check them out.
