Inside The Favelas

Preview: Inside the Favelas

This Wednesday we will publish a new piece of comics journalism by Augusto Paim and MauMau of Brazil. The 12-page comic, 'Inside the Favelas,' will be the first installment of a two-part report exploring the slums (or favelas) of Rio de Janeiro. In preparation of hosting the World Soccer Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016, Rio is clearing the drug cartels from the slums, which they have controlled for decades. But how successful is this clean-up, and how does it affect the average resident?
