Cartoon Movement publishes The Waiting Room
The Cartoon Movement has published a 20 page comic journalism piece by Sarah Glidden, author of “How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less.” The new piece is entitled “The Waiting Room” which looks into the lives of displaced Iraqis living in Syria, who now make up the largest urban refugee population in history.
Sarah recently traveled through Syria, Iraq, Turkey, and Lebanon with reporters from the Common Language Project to research her next graphic novel. In Syria, Iraqi refugees are prohibited from joining the workforce, navigating countless bureaucratic hurtles as they are stuck for years in limbo with no place to call home. With contributing reporting from CLP, Sarah brings to life a some of the refugees with her vivid watercolors.
