From one of America's most acclaimed comics writers a
startlingly original look at life on the streets of Baghdad
during the Iraq War inspired by true events. In the spring
of 2003, a pride of lions escaped from the Baghdad Zoo
during an American bombing raid. Lost and confused, hungry
but finally free, the four lions roamed the decimated
streets of Baghdad in a desperate struggle for their lives.
In documenting the plight of the lions, Pride of Baghdad
raises questions about the true meaning of liberation - can
it be given, or is it earned only through self-determination
and sacrifice? And in the end, is it truly better to die
free than to live life in captivity? Based on a true story,
Vaughan and Henrichon have created a unique and
heartbreaking window into the nature of life during wartime,
illuminating this struggle as only the graphic novel can.
