Read Beirut Won't Cry comic online
Summary: BANG? BLOG! As bombs bombard his hometown of Beirut, thus begins the online diary of Mazen Kerbaj, a Lebanese painter, jazz musician, and cartoonist. Throughout the summer of 2006, during the Israeli attack on Lebanon, Kerbaj published drawings, comics, and writing giving a first-hand account of someone creating during a time of intense everyday brutality. Drawn and written in English, French, and Arabic, Beirut Won`t Cry shows us how an artist views the world and everything in it — his relationships, his family, and his creative pursuits — as it violently crumbles around him. Both historically vital and hilarious, Beirut Won`t Cry introduces Mazen Kerbaj`s unique voice and urgent pen to an American audience for the very first time, teaching readers how to carry on and resist in times of war and oppression.
