Flora Carr highlights La Lucha: The Story of Lucha Castro and Human Rights in Mexico in her piece about graphic novels and their emerging role in human rights advocacy for GQ

It's the first in a series of graphic novels that look at the daily lives of human rights workers and, for Shapiro, the appeal of comic books is the association with a more traditional trope. "Yes, the pictures make the stories more human, but at the same time there's that connection with the heroic… I had always seen activists as real-life superheroes."
