Craig Thompson signs Habibi @ Midtown Comics
Start Time: 12:00PM End Time: 2:00PM
Celebrate the release of the new book HABIBI with creator Craig Thompson (Blankets, Good-bye, Chunky Rice) at Midtown Comics Downtown!
HABIBI will be available at all three Midtown stores on September 20th. Purchase is required to attend signing.
HABIBI is a deeply romantic story that explores and celebrates the beauty and cruelty, the complexity and depths of the Islamic world. Craig's stunning artwork is matched by the haunting stories of his characters' lives. Set in a mythical Middle East, at once contemporary and timeless, HABIBI is a parable about our relationship to the natural world, about the cultural divide between the First World and the Third World, and about the common heritage of Christianity and Islam. The magic of storytelling allows us to see the fragility embedded in cruelty, to understand how beauty can preserve us from destruction and how love can save us from loss of hope.
