Caricaturist Jesús Cossio Guevara (Lima, 1974) presents comic strips inspired in cases of political violence perpetrated by the armed forces of the Peruvian Government and by terrorist group "Shining Path" (Sendero Luminoso), and retold in comic strips. For the reconstruction of the cases, Cossio used data and testimonies taken from the Final Report of the Commission of Truth and Reconciliation, a series of documents prepared by Human Rights organizations, research editions and newspapers and magazines published during those 15 years. The artist created imaginary situations and dialogues that complete the gaps left by the historical, journalistic, or photographic documentation.
