It started with a visit from spirits. In 1991, Joseph Kony, the leader of a Ugandan rebel group known as the Lord’s Resistance Army, claimed that spiritual beings had come to him, instructing him to lead brutal raids against civilians supporting the Ugandan government. For all the horror and condemnation his brutality has aroused around the world, Joseph Kony still survives.
Army of God tells the rest of the story, from the chaos Kony has left behind to the long campaign to defeat him for good. David Axe and Tim Hamilton’s powerful comics reportage, previously serialised on Cartoon Movement, takes research and first hand accounts to create a troubling but effective narrative of this hideous conflict.
