I found this fascinating link in the New York Times. Vertigo (an imprint of DC Comics) has released a comic book series called Unknown Soldier. Due for release as a collected edition on 26 August 2009, the series is set in Uganda and is about Dr Lwanga Moses, a Ugandan whose family fled the country when he was 7. He returns as an adult in 2002 and along with his wife Sera, hopes to put his medical skills to use in helping his country overcome 15 years of civil war.
According to the New York Times article, the series is so authentic and factually based that it comes with a glossary and explains the background of the rebel group Lord’s Resistance Army and various players in the conflict.
The first collected volume is available for pre-order on Amazon and will be released next week on 26 August 2009.
