Following close on the heels of the Arab Spring protests in Iran, this book is the gutsy, impassioned follow-up to that inspiring--- yet for many Iranian families, devastating--- historical episode. The artist and writer are freed to speak publically because of the protections of anonymity, and they introduce the reader to a contemporary Iran that is under oppression but still bursting with rebellious, truth-seeking energy. This extraordinary graphic novel is an example of the publishing world acting as a fast-moving progressive force in the global culture, and it burned in my hands (with relevance!)
