Arab Spring Graphic Novel

An invitation to speak at the Canal France International (CFI) 4M Journalism and New Media Conference in Montpellier took me briefly to the South of France in June. It was a great event and yet another opportunity to meet up with journalists from all over the world. Unfortunately, there was little time to see Montpellier, but on the last day we did at least get to walk around a little. And thanks to a journalist from Azerbaijan who needed to buy some Simpsons figures for a colleague at work, we also found ourselves in a comic book store where we chanced upon this graphic novel depicting the Arab Spring.
