    1. The best examination of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) I have ever read. It is a 'global crime of indifference' that the world has stood by and allowed Joseph Kony to kidnap children and force them to become soldiers (boys) and sex slaves (girls). If we can't unite on this issue then I question the role of the UN.




    2. This is a good primer on the Lord's Resistance Army told through the eyes of individuals who have lived through these atrocities. I thought the pacing and storytelling style were great.


    3. The information in this book is important and harrowing, of course, and the artwork is wonderful, but the scripts never get the reader inside the heads of the participants or give us any insight into the lived experience of these horrific events. Frequently the subjects even go unnamed (though a few are identified in a "Dramatis Personae" section -- in the back of the book), as if their identities are unimportant details. We are observers; we are not THERE. We don't get the survivors' perspectiv [...]


    4. This text lacks factual content. While good for getting awareness raised as to the LRA, it is questionable about representation of Kony, and lacks emphasis on Uganda and the Acholi peoples.


    5. Army of God is a graphic novel by David Axe about the conflict in the Congo (and central Africa in general) and the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). David Axe is a war correspondant who has covered all sorts of varied areas and conflicts and ultimately his motives are good. However, his execution is slightly off. The graphic novel is in black and white and in pencil style with a rough and tight quality that suits the mood of the novel. However, the break down of the chapters and characters is scatt [...]


    6. Army of God attempts to shed light on the violent actions of Joseph Kony and his followers in Central Africa. Told in brief chapters from a variety of perspectives, this graphic novel chronicles Kony's rise in influence and power from the formation of the Lord's Resistance Army in 1991 to the recent viral campaign to end Kony's brutality in 2012. It is an interesting, albeit abominable, chapter in African history, but to really understand the culture that gave rise to Kony, there's a lot more to [...]


    7. Army of God: Joseph Kony’s War in Central Africa is an earnest but ultimately shallow illustrated examination of the atrocities committed by the militant Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army. While Tim Hamilton’s brutal black and white artwork is especially compelling, it’s David Axe’s scatter-shot reporting where things fall apart. Had he concentrated more on his hands-on reporting, such as that of teacher Fidel Mboligikpele or 13-year old LRC survivor “Patricia”, this would have bee [...]


    8. Compré esta novela gráfica en una librería de izquierda del Lower East Side de Manhattan en 2013, intrigado por la viralización del video Kony2012. Lo que encontré me decepcionó. La narrativa es sencillamente mala. Se trata de una serie de secuencias, escenas, encadenadas, sin relación entre sí, y sin información contextual. No se desarrolla casi nada quién es Jospeh Kony, qué es la LRA y por qué debería importarnos más que cualquier otra guerrilla inhumana de las que pueblan Áfri [...]


    9. This book is a great start, but it's way too short - 82 pages is barely a dent in the large, complex, and horrific history of the Congo. I would list it as a useful stepping-stone or primer for people who want to educate themselves about Joseph Kony and get some context around Kony 2012 - but there are other sources that are direly needed.


    10. A reasonable introduction to Kony and the politics of the DRC, but its too quick. Each chapter is too short to get beyond a surface-level look. While it starts with the stories of individuals, it seems to get off track about half way through and become more of a general overview that seems just a tad too simple.


    11. I've been oblivious to the horrible things Joseph Kony has done, mostly due to purposefully not wanting to know - this was an eye opener he must be caught and the things he's done must be known about


    12. Incorporates short stories based on interviews with people throughout the Dem Rep of the Congo and news from USA, Uganda, DRC, and other locations. Puts some of the splashy news about Kony 2012 into context.


    13. It was ok.Important infoIllustrations were great, but wish they'd been in color at least in some scenes Read like a report



    14. Factual and informative- would be perfect non-fiction for my students, but it seemed like there was hardly any emotion about an extremely emotional topic. Characters felt one dimensional.
