A satirical autobiography about a young Frenchman and his hilarious, yet poignant, adventures in the heart of Afghanistan.
It’s 2005. Nicolas Wild is a French cartoonist. He’s broke and about to be homeless. He’s a man without a plan. That is until destiny shows up in his inbox: a paid job… In Afghanistan!
In his graphic Travelogue series, Nicolas Wild brilliantly explores the differences between the Afghan cultures around him and his own, as he and his fellow expat friends crash Asura celebrations, avoid the afterlife, and muse on the differences between Christian Easter egg hunts and Islamic penance.

The story could have been dull or even a proper bore—caught up in an overly didactic analysis of a country in the midst of profound mutation, with a bunch of Talibans… But just as he did in the first volume, the author managed to add a good helping of salutary humor that transforms a mere documentary into a complex work which, in addition to being educational, is above all extremely entertaining.
