Habibi - Craig Thompson

Habibi (Pantheon, $35) is a love story. As told in images and words by Craig Thompson, one of the greatest working cartoonists, “love” ramifies, showing up in maternal, romantic, and even literary manifestations, as in the love for storytelling. The particular story at hand concerns Dodola and Zam, children who experience slavery, separation, and reunion. Thompson recounts their tale using myriad styles of narrative and script, including  parables and Arabic calligraphy.  This richly allusive work of art represents a pinnacle of the graphic-novel genre.
