Sunday night at 9 PM Eastern time, there will be a documentary featuring my work as a cartoon journalist in Afghanistan and elsewhere airing on Al Jazeera America. Here is the promotional information from their website:
“Comic Books Go To War” – Sunday, October 13 9E/ 6P
In this age of hundreds of television stations, 24-hour news, worldwide instantaneous satellite transmission and thousands of web sites updated hourly, the lowly comic book has become a documentary medium, providing a real understanding of the human dimensions of war, genocide and revolution. It’s a new journalistic form. Comic Books Go To War explores the journalistic, aesthetic and political implications of reporting the most violent and terrible of human experiences through “comix.”
There will be several cartoonists included, and this should be well worth watching.
