Not your traditional comic book!  'Pyongyang' documents animator Guy Delisle's two month stay in North Korea’s capital city. Although the dynastic dictatorship of North Korea is a fascinating subject matter, I probably wouldn't read a regular book on the subject, however Delisle's simple yet effective illustrations, and insightful writing make it very accessible.  In parts it's funny too, which is no mean feat when discussing such a dark totalitarian regime.  Well worth a read!
