I have a long-delayed story in the Daily Star on Arab comic book superheroes. Not a new topic, but I think I discuss a few things that weren't raised before. Here is my friend Paul Schemm's story on this a few months ago, which quickly made it around the blogosphere.
The Arabist is published and edited by Issandr El Amrani, a writer and analyst based in Cairo, with contributions by friends.
The Arabist is a labor of love. We don't make much from ads, so please contribute to keep us going.
