I've been a fan of Tarek Shahin's "Al Khan" comic strip since I first noticed it in the Egypt Daily News about 3 years ago.
I've got a blow up of one his cartoons (May 23, 2009) over my work desk at home.
This is worth owning.


Shahin manages to communicate the complexity of modern Egypt by simply playing his delightful cast of characters against one another.
The basic story line revolves around conservative 30 something Omar Shukri who has returned from life as a stockbroker in London to run his grandfather's independent newspaper.
His best friend Anwar (for reasons he can never remember) is a narrow minded and somewhat clueless traditional Muslim doctor with a veiled wife Aisha and a 2nd wife, an undercover American sociologist who is studying the family.
Anwar, You're white, you had the relatively average white upbringing, you consider yourself reasonably intelligent, but not exactly the brightest of the bunch.
You had certain conceptions of the world in large that filtered down.

You saw them on TV (a woefully limited in perspective and selection) as being always angry, always throwing rocks and always bleeding.
You find it I really have an appreciation for graphic novels because as someone who is extremely textual, it forces me to process information differently.
It took me a little bit to get into this book mainly because there was very little context around Egyptian politics and so it took me some time to become acclimated with the references.
However, as a lover of Islamic Studies, I appreciated the perspectives offered in this comic series.
I think like any good political cartoon series, this one takes an honest, internal, selfdeprecating look at the state of Egyptian politics.
And like any American, I LOVED the references to the shoe throwing at Bush, the tribute to Michael Jackson, the Beyonce reference, and that Nov 4 isn't just about American elections.
I can't help it.

I'm just as ethnocentric as the next guy! I don't think I'll get back to this collection, as I was expecting something edited and contextualized for a Western audience and this wasn't it.


I was irked by some of his characterizations.
I didn't think it was that funny.
I didn't really know enough about Egyptian politics to understand these strips.
It feels a little tenuous to say this is the story of the revolution (before it happened) when the story isn't told in a cohesive, comprehensible way.
This is an anthology of strips by a socially conscious Egyptian that ran in the paper during a time just before the revolution.
Just wasn't my thing.
Ç Rise ↠´ As a Westerner, this was an eyeopening read to gain perspective on the various conflicting groups (and subgroups) within Egyptian society.
Knowing it predated the revolution by only nine months makes it intuitive, if not prophetic.
It is historical, contemporary, witty, intelligent, bittersweet, honest, raw, and funny.
It is also only an invitation to learn more about Egypt's complex political and social history and I am motivated to read more indepth historical and works about Egypt.
The Yacoubian Building was also recommended to me as a similar fictional read which is also on my list.
Collection of Egyptian comic strips will draw immediate comparisons to Doonesbury.
A funny look at life in another countrymany things are the same, but some are completely different.
