The Boy Who Lived – How a Comic Strip Can Make You Cry

Today I’m browsing for mood images. My search has led me to tons of newspaper blogs. Then suddenly as I noticed this comic strip below my heart stop for a brief second.

This piece of communication is so simple yet so strong. If this would have a been an ad that ended with ‘Send Money to The Earthquake Victims in China’ I’d have my wallet turned upside down.

I can’t think of a better, stronger and more emotional way to portrait this story. Thank you Visual Journalism for bringing it too me!

    Powerful story, but call me a sceptic – I don't believe for a second it ever happened like this. That might not matter so much, however, if it helps the survivors in some ways.

    The cell-phone is just lame, the writer is lacking skills in how to tell a story and also his imagination.

    Its just layer- on layer on layer! or as we Swedes would say “onions on the salmon”, it gets too clear and therefor stupid.

    Never the less, the topic is touching and sad.
