“The intricate artwork in this book weaves the beauty of Arabic calligraphy and traditional patterns into a story that feels simultaneously ancient and modern, starkly realistic and mythological. And the discovery doesn't end with the last sentence of the story.
The footnotes add another stunning dimension. The appeal of this book will reach far beyond comics fans. Habibi should take its place alongside groundbreaking classics such as Maus and Persepolis.”—PNBA Awards Committee. Habibi is on the shortlist for the 2012 PNBA Book Awards.
