The Chronicle of the Climate Crisis, by Ethan Sacks and Dalibor Talajić, tells ten stories from around the world, all focused on the impact of climate change on human life and efforts to combat it.
“Our goal in making Chronicle of the Climate Crisis is to use the medium of comic books to tell the stories of real heroes at the forefront of the most important battle of all time,” Ethan Sacks said in the announcement. “These forces that change all life on this planet can feel overwhelming or abstract at times, so artist Dalibor Tarajic and I set out to document the consequences on a very human and very personal level.”
“These ten chapters focus on people from around the world who are either fighting the effects of climate change here and now, or fighting for a better future,” he concluded.

Sacks and Talajić previously created a similar 2020 anthology, The One-Time COVID Chronicles, about workers battling the global COVID health crisis.
The AWA partnered with NBC News’ Views, Analysis and Articles section to digitally publish The Chronicle of the Climate Crisis, the first chapter of the anthology is now available through its website. New chapters will be released weekly.
A print edition of The Chronicle of the Climate Crisis is scheduled for release in November.
