Pride of Baghdad is a graphic novel about a handful of lions escaped from the Baghdad Zoo in the midst of the invasion of American troops.  It's based on a true happening although the authors give voice and mythology to the escapees.  The art is amazing.  The story is moving.  7/10. 

(I have to confess that as a central Ohioan I really wanted someone to write a similar tale of the exotic animals on the loose in Zanesville.  Reading this kind of scratched that itch a bit).
