Cartoon Movement continues its notable journalistic endeavors with a new 75-page series on Haiti.
Haitian cartoonist Chevelin Pierre and journalist Pharés Jerome are collaborating on the first chapter, which launches on January 12th, the second anniversary of the 7.0 earthquake which flattened the island. The first chapter looks at the tent cities that still fill Port-au-Prince.
Future installments focus on Haitian politics, the role of NGOs, and what exactly happened with all the relief money that came flooding in after the earthquake.
The comics will be published in English, French, and Creole.
