Surviving the World

A Photocomic Education by Dante Shepherd

Lesson #1104 - International Awareness

Inspired partly by the rowdy El Salvadorian soccer fans who took over practically all of RFK two weeks ago, and by the collection of country flags I've been slowly putting together. Estonia's flag (above) is really beautiful in its simplicity. (By the way, hanging various country flags around your house/room? Not a bad way to go about decorating a college living space. Apparently less desirable once you move in with your future spouse.)

This comic was also partly inspired by my great-grandfather, born in Germany, immigrated to the US, and arrested during WWI for posting a German flag outside his house in New York City.
