Deeply touching… Poppies of Iraq‘s great success is that it achieves so much with seemingly so little… Her memories, especially the more picayune, could have stemmed from any family the world over. This universal quality is what makes the graphic memoir such vital reading, and when coupled with the co-authors’ sharp writing and Trondheim’s circumspect illustrations, Poppies of Iraq becomes a work of near-perfection.
