PoliticsWatch: Bahrain: Lines in Ink, Lines in the Sand by Josh Neufeld debuts today on Cartoon Movement. The Washington Post reports;
NEUFELD’S SCRIPT didn’t really come together, he tells Comic Riffs, until he “realized that Sarah was against the demonstrations and pro-government.”
“That just stunned me,” he says.
“I was having conversations with her over e-mail and I even challenged her a couple of times,” Neufeld says, noting that he cited an official quote about human rights abuses. “We’ve seen footage of the brutal crackdowns [that] she was denying, saying, ‘That’s not true — that’s propaganda spread by Iran.’ “

I love that they get Skyrim on an old-school 5.75-inch floppy and the obligatory “rockin’ out” bit once they kids are in Tamriel. Partridge did that great Saturday Morning Watchmen video when the film adaptation of the classic Alan Moore/Dave Gibbons comics masterpiece hits theatres. The same dead-on humour shows up here, making it a must watch if you’re losing your life to Bethesda’s hit RPG. “Bad guys beware, because it’s Dovahkid time!” Indeed.
