We just started reading Craig Thompson’s Habibi yesterday, and I am only about half-way through it. His previous graphic novel, Blankets, is powerful in many ways, but this latest work is very complex on a lot of levels. I came across this interview with Thompson at Mother Jones, and also wanted to pass along links to his blog, Doot Doot Garden, and the Habibi site which includes a Process Gallery — be sure to click on the images there to enlarge them.

being printed, I had to include them here as well.
