Graphic artist Gia-Bao (GB) Tran’s graphic memoir Vietnamerica tells the story of his family’s escape and survival during the Vietnam war, and their struggle as refugees in the United States. A past Colorlines contributing artist, GB recounts his family’s story as he travels back to Vietnam to attend his grandparents’ funerals. It’s a remarkable telling of an immigrant experience through visual storytelling. Below are some excerpts from the 288-page full color book.
