An unflinching accountin words and picturesof Americas longest war by our most outspoken graphic journalist
Ted Rall traveled deep into Afghanistanwithout embedding himself with U.S. soldiers, without insulating himself with flak jackets and armored SUVswhere no one else would go (except, of course, Afghans).
He made two long trips: the first in the wake of 9/11, and the next ten years later to see what a decade of U.S. occupation had wrought. On the first trip, he shouted his dispatches into a satellite phone provided by a Los Angeles radio station, attempting to explain that the booming in the backgroundand sometimes the foregroundwere the sounds of an all-out war that no one at home would entirely own up to. Ten years later, the alternative newspapers and radio station that had financed his first trip could no longer afford to send him into harms way, so he turned to Kickstarter to fund a groundbreaking effort to publish online a real-time blog of graphic journalism (essentially, a nonfiction comic) documenting what was really happening on the ground, filed daily by satellite.
The result of this intrepid reporting is After We Kill You, We Will Welcome You Back as Honored Guestsa singular account of one determined journalists effort to bring the realities of life in twenty-first-century Afghanistan to the world in the best way he knows how: a mix of travelogue, photography, and award-winning comics.
