A Game for Swallows: To Die, To Leave, To Return - Zeina Abirached

Well done! Stark B/W art in a simple yet striking style, told in few actions and even fewer words. Amazing, non-accusatory tale about a single moment during the Lebanese civil war (yeah, I know we forgot about that one, what with all the middle eastern wars we are so busy ignoring). I think this is a great learning comic in so many ways: Want to learn about drawing a comic using only large amount of blacks with whites? How about telling a story in sparse, simple language? Need to flesh out characters in short order? All this and more is done here and I want more.
