Description

This presentation outlines a proposal for the creation of a graphic novel series starring the superhero, Contego. This graphic novel would be about the situation in Uganda and its surrounding area concerning the Lord's Resistance Army and its implementation of child soldiers. Contego would be fighting the evil Domino (LRA leader Joseph Kony) in the hopes of freeing the children from the rebel army ranks. The graphic novel series would be both educational and entertaining.

CONTEGO AND THE REBELS A Developing Graphic Novel

The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) is a rebel guerrilla active in Uganda and in some parts of Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. These children are then forced to perform violent hostilities. Led by Joseph Kony, the group is accused of several human rights violations, ranging from sexual enslavement to murder. The most infamous is the abduction of children into its forces and this has occurred to nearly 30, 000 children.
