About the Author
--New York Review of Books
"A kaleidoscopic odyssey for the era of displaced persons and disintegrating nations, this collection of dispatches from the Syrian refugee community is a fine example of humanistic journalism."
"The animated pages in Escaping read like composites of several images, where physical geography is represented fractionally and sitting subjects look to be in motion. The story retains a sketchbook-like sensibility rather than that of formal, finalized storytelling. It's fitting: Everyone is on the move. Their stories are far from over, and some are still waiting to be told."
--Dominic Umile, Hyperallergic
"Olivier Kugler is an extraordinarily skilled journalist and cartoonist who is taking comics journalism to a new level. These potent profiles from the migration front lines will leave an indelible impression on your brain and heart."
--Joe Sacco, author of Footnotes in Gaza
"A powerful and compelling close-up view of the Syrian refugee crisis, told through interviews and drawings from refugee camps around the world."
"To read these stories is to catch a glimpse into the complex lives of real people swept up in a larger global event. It does something our 'news' fails to do on a regular basis--tell the stories relevant to us all from the perspective of 'average' people. If mainstream journalism expressed some of the humanity and beauty as is contained in this book, we might be on the road to a better world."
--Joe Infurnari, The Comics Journal
"Escaping Wars and Waves brings a perspective to the refugee crisis that many other comics on the subject lack."
--Maria Aghazarian, No Flying No Tights
