A graphic novel I might read

I’m not a big reader of graphic novels.  In fact, I’ve never read a graphic novel.  The last things I read that had anything in common with graphic novels were the Archie cartoons or Ritchie Rich cartoons I used to read at the orthodontist’s office, back when I was a girl.  However, I might have to change that pattern now.

Bosch Fawstin, who has already proved his bravery by becoming an ex-Muslim, is on the verge of publishing a graphic novel called The Infidel.  It’s two lead characters are Muslims brothers, one of whom responds to 9/11 by becoming Pigman, a counter-jihad superhero, and the other of whom becomes a radical jihadist.  You can read more about Fawstin and his book here.  Robert Spencer not only thinks it’s going to be an interesting and enjoyable book, he points out that Fawstin is already “feeling the love” from the non-cartoon Islamists.

If you’re interested, Fawstin’s online store is here.

  1. I read a great graphic novel, Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood, by Marjane Satrapi. It is an autobiographical account of growing up in Iran during the Islamic Revolution. The graphical format and spare text come together to create a powerful story. I highly recommend it.
