Social injustice, impunity and the abuse of Cambodian women will be featured in a new graphic novel, “The Beauty Curse." Veteran journalist Eric Pape has taken the case of Tat Marina, a former karaoke star and victim of an acid attack, as the subject of the illustrated novel, finding a new way to examine acid attacks, which continue to plague modern Cambodia. Pape told VOA Khmer's Men Kimseng that the graphic novel, which is seeking funding through a Kickstarter campaign, will tell her story to a wider audience, adding to the media coverage and a documentary on the attack.
