Oh, the Places You'll Go! 9 Graphic Travelogues


On a trip abroad? You know you need to brag about it. So you hunt the kiosks for a sweet postcard to send folks back home. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, and you want that picture to get it right: "Feast your eyes on THIS, suckers!"

But what if things aren't all fine and dandy? Not all of these featured artists and writers were in ecstasy 24/7 on their travels. Sarah Glidden, of "How to Understand Israel in 60 Days or Less," struggled to square her political beliefs with her heritage while on her Birthright trip. Lucy Knisley, of "French Milk," started the first leg of her journey with a flight home to Albany, where she discovered that her pet cat had died mere hours earlier. Not a great omen? At least we can be sure Shel Silverstein had fun on his travels cartooning for Playboy.

The summer may be over, but it isn't too late to take one more journey. Flip through our slideshow—you'll be surprised where these artists traveled! Oh, the places you'll go!
