House Without Windows: a harrowing online graphic novel about the lives of children in the Central African Republic

My friend and fellow cartoonist Matt Wuerker pointed me to this incredible graphic novel that was just published online. House Without Windows, by cartoonist Didier Kassai and photojournalist Marc Ellison, uses an innovative mixture of cartooning, photos, fumetti, and 360-video to depict the lives of children in the Central African Republic.

It is amazing, accomplished storytelling, but far more importantly, the stories being told, of children subjected to the horrors of chaos in that war-torn nation, are absolutely harrowing and heartbreaking.

The title "House Without Windows" is a reference to the fact that media coverage of the crisis in this forgotten country has been minimal or nonexistent. I hope the tragic stories of these children can help correct that.
