This month, we enter our second decade of publishing illustrated literature from around the world. From the environment to sexuality to political corruption, the work here tackles pressing themes, crossing national and personal borders to expand our collective social consciousness to global scale. Elettra Stamboulis and Gianluca Costantini map the division of Cyprus. Ilana Zeffren’s sly cats observe their owners negotiate social and sexual normativity. Francisco de la Mora and José Luis Pescador Huerta dispatch a desperate victim of climate change to the UN. Daniel Sixte and Sinzo Aanza reveal local corruption and international exploitation in Congo, while the Trantraal Brothers get the truth about South African township life out of the mouths of babes. Monika Szydłowska’s young Pole pursues the good life elsewhere, and Naz Tansel boards the bus to a microcosm of Turkish society. Guest editor Dominic Davies offers an illuminating introduction.
