North Korean Comics

There's a fascinating review of North Korean comics at this site. Here's the opening to give you an idea of the whole post. I recommend it.

"Our mandate here at Sleep is for the Weak can be generously summarized as “hilariously review the comics and cartoons of the exotic East.” This primarily means that we look at anime and manga coming out of Japan, and maybe the odd Korean manhwa or cartoon that was produced in China.

But there’s one country whose comics (or as they’re called there, gruim-chaek) have pretty much gone unnoticed by everyone. There’s a reason for that. Generally, that’s because the country that they’re from - North Korea - is the most isolated and hidden country in the world."
