A Must read for Graphic Novels enthusiasts. Pride Of Baghdad has a beautiful story, told through some awesome pencilling/coloring. The Story of the 4 lions, escaped from the zoo, during the bombing of Iraq in '03 is very well thought out. The human element is omnipresent in the entire novel. Safa, Ali, Zill and Noor each have their own characteristics, which while remaining true to "lion" traits, also represent 4 human beings who have the similar traits. The 130 odd pages make for a quick read. Must Read and deserving of all the accolades it got!
