DOWNLOAD ✓ Habibi By Craig Thompson Dodolan lapsuus loppuu kun hänet myydään vaimoksi keski ikäiselle paksumahaiselle miehelle Mies on kuitenkin kiltti ja opettaa hänet lukemaan ja kirjoittamaan Kun maantierosvot tappavat miehen raa’asti Dodola pakenee autiomaahan Hän asettuu asumaan hylättyyn laivaan orjuudelta pelastamansa pienen pojan Habibin kan. I don t usually read graphic novels but on the recommendation of my roommate and the fact that this is one beautiful looking book I started reading this At first I wasn t sure how to review it because frankly I had a lot of conflicting feelings about it Some parts I loved some parts I hated some parts I wonder if I just misunderstood But it s okay because that just means I was given an opportunity to write a review in what is personally my favorite reviewing style which isTHE GOOD THE BAD AND THE UGLY Aw yeah Better use the bathroom and grab a snack guys we re gonna be here a while THE GOOD first this is a gorgeous graphic novel Every page is filled with details that I probably didn t even notice because I was whipping through the story so fast despite being 700 pages you can get through this in a couple days because of all the pictures and it made me want to go back and just look at the pages without noticing the words And the story is eually wonderful Dodola and Zam brought together as slave children escape and spend several years living in the desert together Dodola teaches Zam to read and tells him stories which are interspersed throughout the novel Then Dodola is kidnapped and sold to a harem and Zam is left to fend for himself and they each have to learn to survive in their new circumstances while trying to find each other Zam and Dodola are fantastic characters and I loved the uaran stories the best part is when Dodola tells stories that also appear in the Old Testament and my personal favorite was seeing the differences between the two versions of Abraham sacrificing his son The story is told in shifting timelines which was confusing at first but I figured it out after a few pages and did I mention that the drawings are gorgeous Everyone should take a moment and read this review which includes pictures from the novel See what I mean So despite what the next two sections are going to say this is a really moving and beautiful story and will stay with me for a long time This is despite or maybe because of certain uncomfortable elements Strap yourselves in and prepare forTHE BAD as other reviewers have pointed out this book has a lot of uncomfortably Orientalist elements For a while everything is going well Dodola is a strong educated woman who tells Zam stories from the uaran and teaches him calligraphy But then she gets kidnapped and thrown in a harem and it all goes to hell as we re transported into one of those 19th century paintings made by European men who had never even seen a harem Considering how thoughtful and generally un stereotypical the rest of Thompson s portrayal of the Middle East is it was a real disappointment to read the harem sections of the story and find that he didn t even try to subvert or disprove the stereotypes and misconceptions Instead he just goes all out with the fetishism of the harem and all the ugly stereotypes that go with it The luxurious palace is full of scheming eunuchs and kindly black slaves and the harem women are catty bitches who fight each other for the attention of the fat lecherous sultan Thompson commits so whole heartedly to portraying every myth and misconception about harems that I almost suspect he did it on purpose he spent six years researching this book I would assume that at some point he learned that the story of sultans choosing which girl to sleep with by throwing his handkerchief at her was almost certainly made up by white men but if that s the case I don t see how it benefits his story If this is a tongue in cheek mockery of Orientalist stereotypes it s too subtle for me to grasp THE UGLY This book is about a lot of things love religion family survival freedom courage and sex Really it s mostly about sex The protagonist Dodola spends probably 60% of her story time having sex Guess how many times that sex is consensual ONE GODDAMN TIME IN 700 PAGES YeahThere is a lot of rape in this book starting with the first few pages when nine year old Dodola is deflowered by her adult husband and it only gets worse from there Over 700 pages Dodola is coerced into sex forced to trade sex in order to survive and straight up pinned to the ground and violently raped and Thompson draws these scenes in so much detail that reading them started to feel voyeuristic at best At worst Thompson seems to be eroticizing rape And of course because this is essentially a book about sex that means there s going to be a lot of naked people Or accuratelyTITS TITS EVERYWHERE TIT SPLOSION TIT POCALYPSE Tits knockers jugs ta tas hooters boobies BREASTS ALL OVER THE DAMN PLACE I would estimate that the page to tit ratio in this story is about 14 Just about every female character spends most of her time being topless and Dodola herself is topless or just butt ass naked for about 80% of the story The good news is that with the sheer volume of bare breasts in this story the book would make an absolutely stellar present for any 12 year old boys you might know Christmas is coming up guysI don t want to give the impression that I m offended by nudity Far from it However I support eual opportunity nudity which means that if I have to spend my reading time looking at boobs there had better be some dicks to balance things out And that s where this book ventures into awkward territory On the rare occasions that penises make an appearance in the story they re drawn with about as much detail as that time in The Simpsons Movie when we see Bart s junk for two seconds Female pubic hair is shown exactly once and every other time naked women appear they all seem to be freshly waxed even if it makes no sense in the context of the story for them to be that way So considering how some shall we say less photogenic aspects of human sexuality are presented it is staggering how much time Thompson spends drawing boobs He won t draw penises with anything close to anatomical accuracy and lets us see Dodola s pubic hair only once but he draws female characters bare breasts so freuently with so much loving detail and from every possible angle that I could probably draw Dodola s boobs from memory But I can t draw so luckily we re all spared that particular exerciseWhat results is ultimately not a celebration of human sexuality or even female sexuality This is a celebration of WOOHOO TITTAYS which seriously distracts from the overall amazingness of the actual story So in conclusion a beautiful tragic story that is gorgeously drawn and very well done but ultimately there are too many problematic elements for me to be able to give this than three stars Should you read it anyway Yes But be prepared for some ugliness to come with the beautiful Child of Satan House started reading this At first I wasn t Out of the Maze some parts I hated Fiona some parts I wonder if I just misunderstood But it Not the Killing Type s okay because that just means I was given an opportunity to write a review in what is personally my

REVIEW Habibi By Craig Thompson

DOWNLOAD ✓ Habibi By Craig Thompson Ssa Autiomaassa nämä kaksi lasta elävät vaatimatonta mutta onnellista elämää kunnes Dodola ryöstetään jalkavaimoksi sulttaanin haaremiin Habibi lähtee etsimään Dodolaa Alkaa taival jonka aikana Habibi joutuu kasvokkain myös omien juuriensa ja sisimpänsä kanssaMuhkea sarjakuvaromaani saa aineksensa islamilai. Yay for OrientalismMy beef with Thompson is about his staggering Orientalism which I ll get to shortlyThemes of longing and survival permeate Habibi The protagonists Zam and Dodola long for each other likening this to a yearning for the Divine Middle Eastern poets have done this for centuries Zam and Dodola endure horrible events in the name of survival perhaps tying in with Thompson s conservationist theme by implying that our disregard for the earth is tantamount to rape and castration of the planet These themes however are often drowned out no matter how much Thompson underlines them by the towering gaffes of his misrepresentation The country of Wanatolia may be fiction but the cultures it mimics and clumsily muddles together are realWhen one opens Habibi one might assume that it takes place a long time ago in a fictional far away land that happens to look and feel just like Disney s Agrabah But lo Wanatolia has steam punk themed palace guards and high rise condo construction that flies in the face of a village s pollution and resulting poverty and famine Is it to represent the Global South as Thompson claims in a Guernica interviewNo It s simply an Orientalist reimaging of a modern Arabia Thompson needs modern machinery to further his conservationist theme but he still wants his pre modern harems full of odalisues with no cell phones and his pre modern camel caravans crossing a desert that his very same construction companies would build roads throughThompson admitted to Guernica that he drew inspiration for Habibi from the Orientalist art movement Orientalist paintings are a primary example of Orientalism as a racist point of view because they are Western depictions of Arab lands based on preconceptions of the painters who often had never been to the region they were depicting Thompson traps himself by not realizing that his magical land full of djinns and harems is exactly the kind of fantastical interpretation that many Middle Eastern people and Muslims have had enough ofAnd then we come to the other huge problem its portrayal of women and the sexualizing of rape The female protagonist Dodola is raped constantly as a child by her first husband as a child and teen by men in the caravans she tried to steal food from by the sultan whose harem she lived in Dodola s history is a history of rape also falling into the Orientalist trope of brutal male savages and their oppressed women And once Zam or Habibi the male protagonist witnesses one of these rapes both his consciousness and his dreams are plagued by sensual reenactments of her rape Do I really have to make the point here that sexualizing rape is dangerous and unacceptableTasnim at Muslimah Media Watch highlights the tired savage menoppressed women dichotomy that Thompson s novel rehashes Dodola s narrative in particular features an endless array of savage men victimizing sexualized women with hardly a page passing without nudity or brutality Every other page Dodola was naked for one reason or another being raped bathing birthing The way Thompson portrays the female form is little than a screen on which to project his Orientalist new agey crap And with the current lack of female representation in comic books and graphic novels you d think he d try a little harder to make his female protagonist than a naked bodyI genuinely appreciated Thompson s attempt to include the ur an in a positive way which is why I wanted to like this novel G Willow Wilson who has a foot in both worlds because she is both Muslim and a graphic novelist tried similarly writing the sheer dearth of sympathetic Muslim characters in western literature and the fiercely secular world of comics and graphic novels in particular makes me want to forgive a few small sins of inauthenticity And the beautiful drawings almost sway me before I realize that just because it s beautiful doesn t mean it s okayBut mixing Middle Eastern fairy tales with ur anic passages new age y alchemist references and a constantly naked female protagonist turned odalisue makes it apparent that Habibi is Thompson s attempt to write his own Arabian Nights
