This presentation outlines a proposal for the creation of a graphic novel series starring the superhero, Contego. This graphic novel would be about the situation in Uganda and its surrounding area concerning the Lord's Resistance Army and its implementation of child soldiers. Contego would be fighting the evil Domino (LRA leader Joseph Kony) in the hopes of freeing the children from the rebel army ranks. The graphic novel series would be both educational and entertaining.
