Description - Escape from Syria by Samya Kullab

A graphic story of intense current events. From the pen of former Lebanon Star reporter Samya Kullab comes a breathtaking and hard-hitting story of one family's struggle to survive in the face of war, displacement, poverty and relocation. Escape from Syria is a fictionalized account that calls on real-life circumstances and true tales of refugee families to serve as a microcosm of the Syrian uprising and the war and refugee crisis that followed. Beautiful illustrations by Jackie Roche - whose work on the viral web-comic, Syria's Climate Conflict, was seen prominently in Symboliamag. com, Upworthy.com and Motherjones.com, among others - bring Kullab's words to life in stunning imagery that captures both the horror of war and the dignity of human will.
