A Lebanese comic author (against all odds)
Begun in 2006, Malaak:Angel of Peace is my debut series and so far counts 4 volumes in print, with a French version available as ebooks, and 2 more volumes in the making. It is Lebanon's first adventure comic and the only one of its scope. It owes much to my own experience of life during war, my history with martial arts, and my ongoing research in local history and mythology. My work in comics is not, however, limited to it, neither in style nor in subject matter: you can see other approaches in my other comics, and the full range of styles and mediums I explore is visible in my illustration work.
Please don't hesitate to send questions if you're an aspiring comic author and feel something in my experience can help you – or even if you're just curious (my email address is at the bottom of the page) . I share some tips on the blog, and also have a page of Resources for Comickers with the best guides I found online and in print. And if you're interested in what comics I read myself, browse my reviews.
For the rest of my work: calligraphy, design, illustration, photography, children's books, globetrotting and Lebanon, see Majnouna.com.
