Truthout explores the world of comics journalism, profiling my friends Ted Rall, Dan Archer and, of course, Matt Bors:

Matt Bors, a Portland, Oregon-based comics journalist who traveled with Rall to Afghanistan in 2010, has been on the forefront of the effort to bring the comics to a mainstream audience, without compromising the insurgent message. Bors, along with Dutch editorial cartoonist Tjeerd Royaards, edit Cartoon Movement, which has published Archer and Glidden’s work online, alongside a number of other up and coming cartoonists. Bors, who illustrated foreign correspondent David Axe’s memoir War Is Boring, took his latest work — a beautifully rendered six-part report “Afghan Life” — from inception, to illustration, to publication and distribution, a sort of independent media pipeline.

    This is an amazing facet of media coverage of the conflicts in the Middle East. The narrative readers get from this type of storytelling is unlike anything else available. I hope to see more of it cropping up. Keep up the good work, Matt!
