Written by Ethan Sacks with art by Dalibor Talajić, Climate Crisis Chronicles tells ten stories from around the world, all of which focus on the impact of climate change on human life and the efforts to deal with these changes.

“Our goal with Climate Crisis Chronicles was to use the medium of comics to tell the stories of real-life heroes at the forefront of the most important battle of all time,” said Ethan Sacks, in the ad. “These life-changing forces on this planet can sometimes seem overwhelming or abstract, so artist Dalibor Talajić and I set out to document the consequences on a very human and very personal level.”

“These ten chapters highlight people around the world engaged in fighting the effects of climate change here and now, or fighting for a better tomorrow,” he concludes.

Here is a gallery of images from the first chapter:

Sacks and Talajić previously created the similar One-shot anthology COVID Chronicles from 2020, which told the stories of workers battling the global COVID health crisis.

AWA has partnered with THINK, the opinion, analysis and essay section of NBC News to digitally publish Climate Crisis Chronicles, with the first chapter of the one-shot anthology currently available on their website. New chapters will be released every week.

A print edition of Climate Crisis Chronicles is due out in November.
