Freedom Hospital by Hamid Sulaiman

Freedom Hospital

Hamid Sulaiman

This is a graphic novel in more than one sense. It is not neutral about the Syrian war. It is impassioned and angry about what is happening there. It has nothing but contempt for the Assad regime, and the Islamic jihadists. It may be an accident that one jihadi is called Abu Qatada but that tells you all you everything, as do the drawings.
