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!

Curiosity. My greatest asset. Born 1971 and Raised in the suburbs of style city Stockholm, creativity was always a part of growing up. I'm one of Sweden’s most hired speakers and authorities in the field of modern creative and conceptual thinking and skill of innovating brands and their communication.

    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.
