Listen to Graphic Policy Radio as We Talk Home of the Brave a Kickstarter Project to Support!
If you missed it last night, we had guests Spencer Toyama and Jon Lewis to discuss their Kickstarter campagin for Home of the Brave. Aria Monfort is a child born in a fictional America suffering from extreme poverty. The two creators have combined elements of contemporary graphic design and traditional illustration to build this world and tell Aria’s story in the form of a 135 page graphic novel.
This graphic novel helps raise awareness of the issue of slavery, an issue that’s not spotlighted enough and doesn’t get the focus it deserves. They continue the fine tradition of political activism through the comic medium and this is a project I (and this site) is 100% behind and support.
