Malaak Angel of Peace - Joumana Medlej
"I've been deeply attracted to sequential art since childhood. More than the mere telling of a story in pictures, I'm fascinated by the language and art of bande dessinée, the myriad ways in which the visual and the verbal add up for a result that's more than the sum of its parts. Comics share part of their language with literature, illustration and the cinema, but look closer and you'll find a narrow path where comics are uniquely themselves and speak a language that can't be translated into any other medium. That is the path I aim to explore, though by no means do I dismiss the simple, straightforward comic strips that are a joy to both draw and read." , Joumana Medlej.
