Arik Grant Captures His Iraq War Experience In A Comic Strip
Arik Grant was serving a tour of duty in the early years of the Iraq War when he started sketching cartoons of life on the base and posting them in the chow hall. A decade later, Arik pulled out his comics and re-inked them in color. Today, he uses this medium to share his and his fellow soldiers' experiences at war and coming home with a wry humor influenced by M*A*S*H.
Arik Grant joins Idaho Matters to talk about becoming a cartoonist in a war zone and using comics to open a conversation for vets.
