Craig Thompson’s Habibi (audio review)

Posted on 03 March 2014 by Mike-EL

Craig Thompson’s controversial graphic novel is dissected by the Nerdiest Book Club of all!

Nerdy Book Club – Habibi

Habibi is a modern fairy tale set (in a seemingly mythical version of the Middle East), weaving aspects of the Koran into the main story that focuses on class and sexuality in a fictionalized Islamic country.

Mike-EL & G.I.Jolie join the Nerdy Book Club in Ferndale, Michigan (a mythical version of Detroit).
