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.

Survey Asks

Should council use the yet-to-be-finalized Centre Plan when debating new developments?

  • No, it doesn’t exist yet and is still likely to change
  • Yes, thousands of hours of work and consultation have gone into what’s already assembled
  • Maybe, it really depends on what’s being proposed by the developer
  • I don’t know what the Centre Plan is and do not wish to participate in this poll
