Writer Joshua Dysart on Religion in Unknown Soldier

Though the series was recently canceled by DC Comics, the Unknown Soldier has once again been nominated for an Eisner Award. Over at The Comic Book Bin, Beth Davies-Stofka conducted a multi-part interview with its writer Joshua Dysart, and, in this featured segment, she focuses on the role of religion in the series. Dysart tells Davies-Stofka:

There was virtually no conflict between the Christian culture and the Islamic culture as I saw it when I was traveling through Uganda. And I just was obsessed with that. I was fascinated by it.
