Lord's Resistance Army Graphic Novel

Today's two-fer comes from the graphic novel "Army of God", by David Axe and Tim Hamilton.  They have published the first chapter of a graphic novel recounting the atrocities committed by the Lord's Resistance Army (and others) in the Congo.  The first chapter gives background for the area, which has had a deeply sad history in recent centuries, which continues to this day with what has been called "Africa's World War" and the murderous exploits of the Lord's Resistance Army.  So far Chapter 1 uses a few maps.  Future chapters will be forthcoming. The story promises to be sad, even difficult to read, but compelling.
