I was asked by Erick Gordon head of TC’s Student Press Initiative (SPI) to do a comic corresponding to the project they were doing in 5 schools with all English as a second language students. SPI works with schools and students to produce books of their own writing. This group of students came from all over the world – Bangladesh, Haiti, Pakistan, China – and most had been year less than a year. A lot of powerful stories that will be told in the five SPI books of student stories – and i wove together elements from a number of them here. – Nick
