The Guardian considers my new graphic novel ARMY OF GOD:

Joseph Kony‘s campaign of violent conflict in the Congo became the notorious cause of well intentioned teens last year when millions shared a viral video.

Now Kony is the unlikely subject of a comic book, created by freelance reporter David Axe who spent six weeks in 2010 reporting the violence of the Lord’s Resistance Army. The result, published Tuesday, is the graphic novel, Army of God: Joseph Kony’s War in Central Africa – the latest addition to the niche genre of “conflict-based, nonfiction comic reporting”.

It is not, of course, a light read.
