Comics for Peace seeks to encourage and promote positive social change through the medium of comic books. This series of five comic books were authored by teams of university students from across Pakistan, creating stories that bring attention to the societal issues that concern them, including discrimination, hate, violence and extremism. Working under the mentorship and support of professional comic book writers and artists, the students have developed compelling storylines and themes that will raise awareness and provoke dialogue among their peers and the larger global community.
Our story so far…
The Comics for Peace project builds upon the successful Paasban series by the CFx Comics team using comics as a vehicle for social change and advocating a message of peace and tolerance among the burgeoning youth population of Pakistan. The acclaimed comic book creator Joshua Dysart (of Hellboy, Conan, and Swamp thing fame) joined the CFx team and local comic book creators on a whirlwind tour across Universities all over Pakistan where they interacted with over a thousand students through peacebuilding and comic book workshops.
A fellowship program was set up and 20 students were selected and run through an intensive one year program through which their ideas were fleshed out into five professionally developed comics, which will be released as printed and animated content. Each comic blends the students own experiences with fictionalized storytelling, touching upon a unique aspect of peace.
