Black Spring

The annual Words Without Borders Comics Issue ran in February, but thanks to the miracle of the interwebs, it’s still available to be greedily perused! Check out an excerpt from Black Spring, the memoir of Cuban political refugee Alejandro González Raga as told to author Maxence Emery and illustrated by Thomas Humeau. Raga was a victim of the titular event, a 2003 dissident crackdown. The excerpt covers Raga’s childhood among citizens block committees, and the free flowering of adolescence cut short by government repression.
