Aisha Thani

Anthony Del Col from The Beat writes about the first ever Middle East Film and Comic-Con, held on the weekend of April 20-21 in Dubai. He talks about the rising popularity of comics reading and creating across the region known as the Middle East as well as coverage of the convention itself.

Notable mentions include the new graphic novel River Jordan, written by Jordanian American actor & writer Merik Tadros.

The AANM Library has a growing graphic novel collection as well and looks forward to adding several selections that were featured at the MEFCC!
