The Cartoonist Embed

I'm sitting with my new friend Chris Muir, at Caribou Coffee in the Kuwait City International Airport. I haven't mentioned Chris before, but he was on my flight from Amsterdam to Kuwait, and he was one of the other three journalists that I travelled to Baghdad with on the way in to Iraq two weeks ago.

This morning I ran into Chris again in Kuwait, and it turns out he is on my same flight from Kuwait to Amsterdam again. Small world. We have been taking turns watching each others bags in the airport, and generally hanging out. It's always nice see a familiar face.

Chris is a cartoonist, and he just spent a week in Mosul on an embed to get material for his comic strip (and you thought I was crazy). At any rate I thought I would pass along the link to his website so you can check out his comic strip. He doesn't have any Iraq themed strips yet, but I'm sure he will soon.

UPDATE: I've also added Chris' comic strip to the bottom of this page (it will update daily).

UPDATE II (March 8th): Chris has a humorous travelogue posted on The Fourth Rail today. For those that aren't familiar with it, Bill Roggio's Fourth Rail is definitely the most comprehensive and credible independent source of daily news on the wars in Iraq and Afganistan that I am aware of.

Chris Muir is the cartoonist that I met in Kuwait. He spent two weeks in Iraq at the same time I was there in February 2007, and so thought it would relevant to showcase his work on my site. Here is a link to Chris' humorous travelogue of this Iraq trip:
