Reading such works as Joe Sacco, Footnotes in Gaza, Marjane Satrapi, Persepolis, Craig Thompson, Habibi, Brian K. Vaughan, Pride of Baghdad and several others, we will discuss the evolution of the medium, the fraught history of visually representing the Middle East, as well as the challenges and opportunities graphic novels present for understanding the region.
