DUSTWUN Graphic Novel Series
We are developing a series of graphic novels to further explore the themes touched upon in the movie – immigration, patriotism, DACA, veterans and mental illness, the reality of mass migration and its implications, citizenship and civic duty, compassion and the complex web of moral obligation.
Our intention with this series is to expand the current dialogue on subjects often simplified in the media, inviting a more layered understanding of how to approach one of the most complex challenges of the present time. We are creating a compelling series that can be utilized in middle schools and high schools to deepen the conversation about these issues.
We are working with Mexican artist Cristian Jose Maria Cuellar Hernandez (“Chema”) from San Luis Potosi, Mexico and Hector Rodriguez (“El Peso Hero”) on the development of the project.
