Cartoonist Sarah Glidden (HOW TO UNDERSTAND ISRAEL IN 60 DAYS OR LESS) recently got back from a second trip to the Middle East, traveling with Common Language Project. While she plans an entire book on the experience, for now she’s done “The Waiting Room” a 21-page comic for Cartoon Movement, Mat Bors’ political comics site, with this episode about Syrian refugees.

Glidden is definitely following in the footsteps of the incomparable Joe Sacco in becoming a graphic reporter on the trouble spots of the world. While there’s only one Sacco, Glidden is finding her own place in the field with her work.
