Cartoonist Sarah Glidden follows up her acclaimed debut with Rolling Blackouts, a travel memoir of her two-month long journey through Turkey, Iraq, and Syria. Glidden accompanies two reporters and a former Marine as they research the impact of the Iraq War on the region’s refugees. Everyone has a story to tell: Glidden interviews bloggers, UN officials, taxi drivers, US deportees, and American soldiers with a sympathetic and searching eye. Her trademark muted watercolors and self-effacing humor cement Glidden’s place as one of the comics world’s most original nonfiction voices.
