In the inaugural installment of "RW-94", we meet Christian Davenport: a somewhat naive idealistic, yet jaded, worldly African-American academic traveling for the first time to Rwanda in 2000 with intent to help. And, we meet Darick Ritter: an angst-ridden, artist extraordinaire who finds himself accompanying Christian on the journey to tell an unconventional story about violence, research, memory and identity.

In the second issue (Chapter 1), Christian dives or falls right into the mix in Kigali and learns a lesson or two about what went down, what's going down as well as what can and what cannot be discussed. Darick pushes to get some clarity and a clear direction for the comic.
