Obra nominada a los premios Eisner 2022 y ganadora del Prix Franceinfo como el mejor cómic de actualidad y reportaje. «Jamás pensé que esto pudiese pasar, y me doy cuenta de que cualquiera puede convertirse en refugiado... Solo hace falta que tu país se desmorone. Y o te caes con él, o te marchas». Esta es la historia real de Hakim, un joven sirio que tuvo que abandonarlo todo: su familia, sus amigos, su propio negocio, su país
Y así se convirtió en refugiado. Porque estalló la guerra, porque lo torturaron, porque supuestamente el país vecino podría ofrecerle un futuro y seguridad. Un testimonio intenso y conmovedor sobre lo que significa ser humano en un mundo que a menudo se olvida de serlo.
ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Nominated for the Eisner Awards 2022 and winner of the Prix Franceinfo as the best current affairs and journalism comic. A remarkable recounting of a human journey through an inhumane world. What does it mean to be a refugee? It is easy for those who live in relative freedom to ignore or even to villainize people who have been forced to flee their homes. After all, it can be hard to identify with others experiences when you havent been in their shoes. In Hakims Odyssey, we see firsthand how war can make anyone a refugee. Hakim, a successful young Syrian who had his whole life ahead of him, tells his story: how war forced him to leave everything behind, including his family, his friends, his home, and his business. After the Syrian uprising in 2011, Hakim was arrested and tortured, his town was bombed, his business was seized by the army, and members of his family were arrested or disappeared. This first leg of his odyssey follows Hakim as he travels from Syria to Lebanon, Lebanon to Jordan, and Jordan to Turkey, where he struggles to earn a living and dreams of one day returning to his home. This graphic novel is necessary reading for our time. Alternately hopeful and heartbreaking, Hakims Odyssey is a story about what it means to be human in a world that sometimes fails to be humane.
