Phenomenal reviews and comments have been pouring in online,for DEOGRATIAS, A Tale of Rwanda, by Stassen, confirming what we all believe here in the wings: this is a major, magnificent, important book.
Deogratias proves that graphic novels do not have to simply be escapist entertainment, joining the likes of Maus, Palestine and Persepolis as representatives of more than just great graphic novels, but also as powerful, thought-provoking literature, too. (5 out of 5 Eisners)
So let’s open up this conversation. Many of you out there have read this book. Comments please. I’m very keen to hear what you thought.
(And here’s your chance, John Walsh!)
