Chinese writer and artist Coco Wang was so overwhelmed by the tragedy of China’s recent earthquake that she created a set of incredibly moving comic strips to try and retell some of the stories to the rest of the world.

The stories are all based on accounts of the rescue work collected from newspapers. They highlight the bravery, kindness, tenacity and ability to smile in the face of hardship of the Chinese people following this disaster.
