Habibi - Written and illustrated by Craig Thompson - Book Review

Habibi - Written and illustrated by Craig Thompson - Book Review | Young Adult Literature: Science Fiction and Fantasy | Scoop.it

According to the New York Times Book Review:

 

"Craig Thompson’s “Habibi” is a work of fantasy about being ashamed of one’s fantasies. This anxiety is native to comics, or at least to the broad strain of American comics written by white males. The work of R. Crumb, for example, is a gallery of self-loathing — portraits that register an artist’s recoil from his own noxious imaginings. Thompson’s work is much prettier than anything drawn by Crumb, but the anxieties are similar.If “Habibi” had been content to mine this narrow but rich vein of adolescent angst it might have been a comic’s comic, or at least an instructive book for young adults. Instead, it aspires to address questions of spirituality, environmental degradation and religious pluralism. The result is frankly a mess, though it does include some arresting pictures."

 

Having loved "Blankets", Thompson's semi-autobiographical picture novel, I'm disappointed about this review, but I suspected that this might be the case...
