      I just finished this comic on the bus this morning, and I was blown away - the other commuters probably though I was reading state secrets, so focused was I. I mean, I was expecting something great, but this is just so genuine, and interesting, and communicates a struggle by educating the reader (and you even entertain the reader additionally by finding what bits humor can be observed and applied to the situation – such as the fact that the life-threatening traffic was like a game of Russian Roulette crossed with Chicken, and the frustration of the translator not communicating exactly what you wanted the interviewee to know!).

      After reading this, I want to research this issue even more, so I can discuss it more with my fellow peers, and donate to the cause. I can’t wait for the next issue! But I gladly will – this one was definitely worth the completely understandable wait. Thank you, Dan Archer, for exploring an issue that a lot of people don’t want to think about. These people are lucky they have you to help tell their story.
