Description: The startlingly original look at life on the streets of Baghdad during the Iraq War inspired by true events arrives in a stunning new hardcover edition. In this provocative graphic novel, superstar comics writer Brian K. Vaughan examines life on the streets of war-torn Iraq. 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? This moving graphic novel is inspired by true events.

This new Deluxe Edition hardcover presents the original graphic novel, plus developmental art and more.

 

From Animal Farm to Maus, fiction has had a rich history of exploiting readers' inherent sympathy for animals to tell human stories that would normally be too abstract, too vast or too unfathomably horrific for most of us to digest. — Brian K. Vaughan
