Muktatafaht: A comics anthology

Don't be fooled by the bad video that sounds, at the beginning, like an advertisement for the Boston area tourism board. This is a cool project to produce an anthology of Middle Eastern comics, and I've contributed to the Kickstarter fundraising project for it. Help if you like comics! [Thanks, Ethan.]
