Fatherland by Nina Bunjevac is out today. Get it now!
—-

In 1975 Nina Bunjevac’s mother fled her marriage and her adopted country of Canada and took Nina back to Yugoslavia to live with her parents. Peter, her husband, was a fanatical Serbian nationalist who had been forced to leave his country at the end of World War II and migrate to Canada. But even there he continued his activities, joining a terrorist group that planned to set off bombs at the homes of Tito sympathisers and at Yugoslav missions in Canada and the USA.

Nina Bunjevac tells her family’s story in superb black-and-white artwork. Fatherland is a masterpiece of non-fiction comics, worthy to stand beside Persepolis and Palestine.
