Product description


"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

"Evocative portraits and handwritten narratives... this book powerfully draws the experiences of the Syrian refugees Kugler met in Iraqi Kurdistan and Europe." -- Irish Times

"These messages are really powerful but in a form that we re not used to seeing them in." -- BBC Radio London

" There s no doubting that his evocative portrayal of the plight of Syrian refugees captures the pure humanity of one of the greatest international crises of our time." -- Broken Frontier

"That's what Kugler does so well, he enables us to see these people not as a news story, not as statistics, not as demonised figures, but to show us people, people we can see ourselves in, we can empathise with. And from empathy comes compassion and more understanding. A very important read." --Forbidden Planet

"An immersive exploration of the immigrant experience... further proof of just how potent graphic journalism can be. Kugler's style carries an emotional punch... It allows him to get inside people's stories in a fresh and compelling way." -- Herald Scotland

"Olivier Kugler's intimate documentary drawings of refugees from Syria have established the award-winning artist as one of the world's most important graphic reporters." -- Bookanista

"Olivier Kugler's timely new graphic novel Escaping Wars and Waves, a series of interviews with Syrian refugees in Kurdistan, Calais and beyond. It's an intriguing piece of comics journalism and yet another important book published by Myriad." -- Ink Issue

"This is a brilliant example of the power and versatility of the medium engaging, informative, shocking and even heart-warming. A book we should all take the time to read." --The Cartoonists Club
