The Nisoor Square Shootings

Over at Cartoon Movement we've published a new multimedia comic by Dan Archer on the Nissor Square shootings by Blackwater employees that took place in 2007 and killed 17 Iraqi civilians. Based on eyewitness testimony, photo references, and numerous reports, Archer recreated the time line of the shooting, breaking down the chaotic events into a series of comic panels from different perspectives. Archer is at the forefront of incorporating multimedia aspects into comics journalism and a time line like this shows the kind of depth comics can bring to news stories.
