Pride of Baghdad
Not much to pick from this week due to my lack of reading time, but I did think of one favorite of mine from Brian K. Vaughan, who you know well from Y: The Last Man and Ex Machina.

This standalone graphic novel speaks highly about the invasion of Iraq in 2003 and what it is to really earn freedom through the eyes of four lions that escaped the Baghdad zoo. Great pacing and characterization, as you would expect from a talent like Vaughan, and equally exquisite art from Niko Henrichon. There’s a good few political metaphors you can grab from this (it’s about the invasion of Iraq, so not surprised there), but ultimately it speaks volumes about the price of freedom and whether it’s given or earned. Go check it out!
