“Funded by the European Union, among others, the festival’s goal is to promote new talent and encourage cartooning in Palestine. An exhibition in Bethlehem’s Manger Square by participating cartoon artists will include work by Baha Boukhari, a political cartoonist for Ramallah-based Al Ayyam newspaper, architect and cartoonist Samir Harb, and Yara Bamieh, an architect, graphic designer and illustrator. French cartoonist Maximilien Le Roy, who in 2009 published a graphic novel about Gaza, and a year later a book about the wall in the West Bank, will conduct a beginner workshop in the Aida Refugee Camp on Saturday. Journalist and comic script -writer Albert Drandov will give a talk about his work and experience on the closing day this Sunday.”

Science fiction’s utopias are built out of wilful ignorance (Utopia, dystopia, it’s all rock-n-roll to me.)
Marvel to Debut Squirrel Girl Comic Series in January 2015 Y’know, it’s funny, I was just thinking about Dan Slott’s “Great Lakes Avengers” and how completely marvelous it is. So more Squirrel Girl can only be delightful.
