Comic book publisher AWA is raising awareness of the growing climate crisis facing the world through a one-shot comic titled Climate Crisis Chronicles, which will tell ten true stories of people on the “frontline” of the climate crisis.

Written by Ethan Sacks with art by Dalibor Talajić, Climate Crisis Chronicles tells ten stories from around the world, all with a focus on the impact climate change has on human lives and efforts to deal with those changes.
“Our goal with Climate Crisis Chronicles was to use the medium of comics to tell the stories of real-life heroes on the front lines of the greatest battle of all time,” says Ethan Sacks in the ad. “These forces that change all life on this planet can seem overwhelming or abstract at times, so artist Dalibor Talajić and I set out to document the consequences on a very human and very personal level.”
“These ten chapters highlight people from around the world who are fighting the effects of climate change here and now or fighting for a better future,” he concludes.
Here is a gallery of images from the first chapter:
Sacks and Talajić previously created the similar 2020 anthology one-shot COVID Chronicles, which told the stories of workers fighting the global COVID health crisis.
AWA has partnered with THINK, NBC News’ “opinion, analysis and essays” section to release Climate Crisis Chronicles digitally, with the first chapter of the one-shot anthology currently available through its website. New chapters will be released weekly.
A print edition of Climate Crisis Chronicles is scheduled to be published in November.
