Pride of Baghdad 

Brian K. Vaughan


Pride of Baghdad
Brian K. Vaughan
DC/Vertigo
Writer Brian K. Vaughan is a fan favourite, and his ongoing West Wing-with-superhero story Ex Machina has been making these kinds of lists since its debut a couple of years ago. This hardcover original with art from Nino Henrichon takes its inspiration from actual events: In April 2003, a pride of lions escape from the Baghdad Zoo with the arrival of American troops. Henrichon envisions the war-torn city not a far cry from what we see on the evening news, and Vaughan tells a talking animal story in the shade of Richard Adams and Rudyard Kipling, cut with humour and tragedy.
