Choices in life

On my recent visit to Cambodia, I visited the offices of Our Books, the only non-profit organisation focused on the development of comic art in the country and picked up a copy of Life’s Choices. Its a glossy 48 page A5 full colour comic that has been widely distributed in Khmer and English across Cambodia through NGOs, schools and universities. The book focuses on the lives of students and is intended to raise awareness about corruption in everyday life and how to respond to it. The comic can also be found online, in both languages, here.
Our Books is developing comic art by publishing quality comics for both entertainment and education, as well as archiving historical comics, and have already scanned and archived over 200 classic Khmer comics. You can find out more about them on their website.
