Craig Thompsons Habibi-Processpics

Craig Thompson, dessen Blankets jetzt seit zwei Jahren bei mir (bislang leider nur angelesen) im Regal steht, hat ein neues Comic am Start, an dem er sechs Jahre lang arbeitete: Habibi. Und dazu hat er eine sehr schöne Galerie voller Bilder des Entstehungsprozesses online gestellt.

From the internationally acclaimed author of BLANKETS (“A triumph for the genre.”—Library Journal ), a highly anticipated new graphic novel.

Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, HABIBI tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, by circumstance, and by the love that grows between them.

At once contemporary and timeless, HABIBI gives us a love story of astounding resonance: a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and, most potently, the magic of storytelling.
