As she works on her next book, Stumbling Toward Damascus, Sarah Glidden has continued to stay abreast of current events in the Middle East, which means that like many of us, she was riveted by the news coming out of Egypt. And like a lot of us in the United States, she experienced it primarily through online video feeds, and Twitter. Unlike a lot of us, though, she and studio partner Domitille Collardey have created a comic talking about their reactions, titled “Egypt from 5,000 Miles Away.”
Stumbling Toward Damascus will be an adaptation of a visit Glidden took with several journalists as they traveled through Eastern Turkey, Iraqi Kurdistan, and Damascus in Syria, and will show “how they work together to make the news.” She’s been posting some artwork and sketches in her blog.
