A Graphic History of the Honduran Coup

Dan Archer and Archcomix have an interesting take on the mobile comic format:

An excellent idea which links the comic with the news medium. I would like to see more of these!

The first ever iphone app to convey the news in comics format, providing clickable links to sources and evidence cited. This app focuses on the dramatic events in Honduras between June and September 2009 that saw President Manuel Zelaya’s removal from power. Produced by John S. Knight Journalism Fellow Dan Archer and n+1 Editor Nikil Saval, based on their comic of the same name. For more journalism in comics format, visit: www.archcomix.com.

The app’s goals are to: present news coverage in an innovative visual medium; introduce readers to central american news, and why it matters in the US; and present some historical context to US involvement in the region over the last century.

“A journalistic take on the Honduran crisis whose attention to context puts conventional media coverage to shame”
The Guardian UK

“Archer’s gift as a storyteller is his ability to quickly distill enormous and complex amounts of information into easily-digestible images.”
The Comics Journal
