Daily Dose Pick: War Is Boring

In his graphic-novel memoir War Is Boring: Bored Stiff, Scared to Death in the World’s Worst War Zones, David Axe chronicles the unspoken ravages and less-than-romantic experience of being a war correspondent.

Loosely based on the web comic of the same name, Axe’s unconventional account is bolstered by Matt Bors’ stark illustrations. From fleeing a movie-theater mob in Somalia to hard-partying local guides in Lebanon, War Is Boring features engrossing adventures and encounters with the people and places that don’t make headlines.

Check out artist Matt Bors’ official site, read some of David Axe’s articles for the Washington Post, explore the War Is Boring website, and buy a copy of your own.
