The graphic story was published at suppressedimages.net in the final week of Barack Obama’s presidency. The final pane of the story includes a speculative twist in which Chelsea’s sentence is commuted — a twist which spectacularly came true.

The story was written by Chelsea Manning and Heather Dewey-Hagborg, and illustrated by Shoili Kanungo, a designer with ThoughtWorks India.
