Cablegate Comics

By Joe Alterio

After WikiLeaks' released thousands of State Department communications, we began collecting the most interesting stories from the embassy messages in the Cablegate Chronicles here at The Atlantic. We wanted to find the most interesting narratives, the strangest stories, and the best writing.

Designer and illustrator Joe Alterio was similarly intrigued by the cables, and in collaboration with the website HiLoBrow, created a series of comics based on Cablegate selections. Here we present the 10-part series. (You can click each comic to get a larger version.)
