Walking Wounded: Uncut Stories from Iraq
Written by: Olivier Morel
Art by: Maël
Translated by: Edward Gauvin

For thousands of young Americans, after the shock of 9/11, there was Ar Ramadi, Baghdad, Abu Ghraib and then the war in Iraq. Then came the trauma. Olivier Morel gave them a voice in his compelling documentary On the Bridge. Walking Wounded is the story of Morel getting close to the young vets, their troubled experience and their lives after the war. He and artist Mael relate through these veterans the impossible return of those who aspire to get back to a normal life.

A graphic novel illustrating the challenges and victories of Iraq War veterans. A new addition to our graphic novel section. On display on the second floor at the main library.
