Artist and WikiLeaks activist Clark Stoeckley is illustrating the trial of Private First Class Bradley Manning as a comic series. Manning is on trial for allegedly leaking files, videos, and other documents to WikiLeaks in one of the largest releases of classified data in U.S. history.
Drawing and writing in real-time from inside the courtroom, Stoeckley is capturing the important and secretive trial first-hand. The United States vs. PFC Bradley Manning: A graphic account from inside the courtroom features vivid sketches from inside the court and beyond, together with selected transcripts of the proceedings.
These trace the arguments as they move back and forth between the defence and the prosecution, providing a vital record and a uniquely compelling read. A 140-page paperback and ebook edition is due to be published in October.
