Joseph Kony’s War in Central Africa – in Comics Form

By Carol Hills/The World

Listen

(Duration: 4:06)

Remember the film “Kony 2012?”

The film went viral last year and put Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army in the cross-hairs of millions of outraged citizens.

Well, a year later, Joseph Kony and his remaining believers are still somewhere in Central Africa, literally raping and pillaging as they go.

War correspondent David Axe wants to remind people that Kony is still out there.

Axe has written a graphic novel with illustrator Tim Hamilton, “Army of God: Joseph Kony’s War in Central Africa,” to tell the story of the Lord’s Resistance Army.

The novel demonstrates why the show-and-tell nature of comics journalism works as a medium to talk about Joseph Kony and violence he has wrought.

Love, Roughhousing and Fifth Position in ‘Brothers Emanuel’

By Rachel Martin

Listen

(Duration: 6:03)

The brothers in the Emanuel family are known for their success and for their chutzpah. The youngest is Ari Emanuel, a high-powered Hollywood agent. The HBO show Entourage actually based a character on Ari, and that character is a bit, well, blunt — threatening, for example, to rip out someone's tongue and serve it to his son's pet lizard.
