In 2010 I went to the Democratic Republic of Congo to report on the
Lord’s Resistance Army rebel group. In 2011 I wrote a graphic novel
script based on my reporting and artist Tim Hamilton agreed to draw it.
Cartoonist Matt Bors edited the story and early this year the Dutch Website Cartoon Movement serialized the art online, following which book publisher Public
Affairs acquired the paperback rights. And last month, the federal
Office of Foreign Assets Control confiscated the majority of the advance
payment, claiming that we were laundering the money for onward transfer
to a terrorist organization.
