    KINDLE [Habibi by Craig Thompson] Habibi is a laboriously gorgeous comic with beautiful drawings inks and atmosphere Ever since Craig Thompson announced it on his blog years ago I had been really excited I had loved Goodbye Chunky Rice liked Blankets and was sure that Thompson would craft a beautiful story with all the care that it would reuire It's a real shame that it's a hopelessly orientalist narrative with virtually every other ism you can think of added in with bonu

Free read Habibi by Craig Thompson Download Habibi by Craig Thompson 108 Sesta tarinankerronnan perinteestä mutta sen tarina tuo mystisine juonteineen ja syvällisessä kulttuuriin perehtyneisyydessään lukijan eteen arabikulttuurin koko moninaisuuden Sivuja kuvittava arabiornamentiikka ja tarinan imu vievät lukijan Tuhannen ja yhden yön maisemiin runouden ja erotiikan arvoitusten äärelle. SpoilersAbsolutely awful one of the most rage inducing things I ve ever read I don t even know where to begin there were that many fucked up things about it Random rambly thoughts Habibi was a ridiculously offensive graphic novel filled with nothing but racist sexist orientalist misogynistic rubbish Then there was the glorification of abuse and rape running throughout the main character couldn t go at least a couple of pages without being naked raped or victimised The story itself was shallow nonsensical over the top unrealistic and a general mess Habibi might have been set in a fictional country but it was than clear that it was some warped stereotypical and exaggerated portrayal of the Middle East and Arabsmuslims what with the clothing the main religion being Islam the use of Arabic language the characters being mostly Arab and the harems the jinn the myths and stories told within Thompson s idea of Middle Eastern culture was ALL men are either rapists or slaves ALL women get raped and have no free will fathers will happily sell their young daughters for a little bit of money girls can only resort to prostitution to survive because apparently there s no job opportunities pretty much all Middle Eastern people live in poordesperateunclean conditions that Arabs believe in slavery and have a booming and very public slave trade that NO Middle Eastern people have self respectmoralsintelligencekindness or compassion and ALL middle agedold men are pedophiles and rapists at heart and have no problem fucking young girls Not one Arabmuslim character was portrayed as anything other than horrid vile sex crazed or evil Not one woman was portrayed as anything other than weak vulnerable oppressed bitchy or heartlessThere s no doubt in my mind that Thompson has a worse than low opinion of Arabs muslims and other minorities Summary of sorts The story starts with a child Dodola being heartlessly sold into a forced marriage her old grotesue husband rapes her then she s kidnapped from her rapist husband and sold into slavery she manages to escape with a toddler called Zam and they live on a boat in the middle of a desert she becomes a mother of sorts to Zam In order for her and Zam to survive she prostitutes herself to passing caravans and ALL the old men she meets are than happy to fuck a child she does that for years Then she s separated from Zam when she s kidnapped again this time she s forced into a harem with hundreds of other women Ugh then there s rape WTFery slavery fucked up evil men bitchy women prostitution incest At no point in the story was there one sane person or person with morals The Arab men were all slavers greedy violent abusive disgusting rapists who had no compassion or empathy or morals The black characters were either slaves or submissive or happy to serve The women were only ever portrayed as weak and were constantly sexualised or brutalized None of the characters had any depth or personality they were worse than stereotypes Dodola had no agency whatsoever she was a constant victim and was pushedpulled in every direction by those around her She was also drawn and depicted in a disgusting way No matter what she doing she was naked every other page she was drawn like some sort of porn star What did her being naked add to the story Nothing What was with all the sensual and loving drawings whenever she was being raped or attacked Does Thompson think rape and abuse is sexy or romantic Zam and Dodola s relationship made me sick Dodola thought of Zam as her child even though there was only a nine year age difference between them they had a mother son relationship for a decade or so before they were separated Dodola used to bathe him as a toddler change him teach him things and tell him stories before bed How could they get together when they had a parentchild relationship Even when she got pregnant herself she still thought of Zam as her true child so than her own biological child So yea for them to be together when they had parentchild feelings for each other was beyond vile Dodola was only ever a sexual object even when she was rapedbeing abusedgiving birth she was drawn in a sickeningly sensual way Her being naked every other page was not only gratuitous but also made her seem even vulnerable and victim like to everyone around her even her pre pubescent son was constantly perving on her She was ALWAYS the victim Of course Dodola was drawn as having no body hair despite her having no supplies and living in the middle of a desert I very much doubt she prostituted herself for razors or wax when she was so desperate for food for her and Zam I also find it highly unlikely that the caravans she traded with would even stock those things She also managed to have the perfect body even though she had little foodsupplies how did she manage to always look so good In reality she would have looked hairy and malnourished with bad skin but that wouldn t have been sexy or exotic enough for Thompson The only time she was drawn as grotesue was when she was heavily pregnant apparently pregnancy is the most disgusting thing ever because pregnant women are no longer just blow up dolls for men so that immediately makes them some sort of ugly alien species It was fucked up Of course Thompson didn t want to be realistic he just wanted to draw his wet fantasy of Arab women One of the worst parts was Thompson writing the rape apology towards the end where Dodola fondly reflected back on her oldmiddle aged husband the man who forced himself on her when she was about eight years old Yea she excused his rape because apparently the poor guy just couldn t help himself he just wanted her oh so badly and it wasn t his fault he was so horny for his child bride that he had to force himself on her the poor guy had no control over it Ugh Does Thompson think Arab women would actually think like that Or women in general would fondly excuse the pedophile that raped them REALLY Ugh the rape apology was beyond disturbing it almost seemed like Thompson hopedthought that s how womenlittle girls wouldshould view rape and rapists as something that couldn t be helped because naturally the guy was needy and couldn t help himself Also to ease the suffering rapists and pedos experience womenlittle girls should happily seduce and fuck them because that s their job and they secretly love it the act itself and pleasing men and they should understand rapists and pedos Ugh an absolutely awful portrayal of women men abuse rape and any non white race So first Dodola was a child bride to an old man then she had to prostitute herself to countless men so the other guy in her life could survive then she was forced into a harem and had a son and then her other son wanted her so to appease him she began a relationship with him Everything Dodola did was either out of her hands or done for the sake of a man Heaven forbid a woman doing something for herself or for someone that wasn t male What s with all these women in bookstvmovies whose only driving force is a man Women can do things that having NOTHING to do with men Another thing that pissed me off was that ALL the women in the harem hated Dodola because the sultan liked her most they were so jealous of her that they wanted her dead Apparently all women envy other women who get male attention than them to such a degree that they want them dead Ridiculous I guess the artwork was okay There were parts that were beautiful but those parts weren t down to Thompson all he did was usecopy the Arabic languageartdesign There was nothing original from him at all He doesn t deserve credit for copying prominent Arabic artlanguage It s clear that Thompson wanted to base a novel on a foreign culture so his story could be exotic and different He didn t bother to actually learn or research the different facets and beauty of the culture Nope he just wanted to twist and exaggerate atrocities from its past so he could produce something shocking and hard hitting Well all he managed to produce was a racist sexist disgusting piece of unrealistic crap Yea I won t read any of his other graphic novels

Free read Habibi by Craig Thompson Download Habibi by Craig Thompson 108 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

Damn you Craig Thompson I m so disappointed with your book HabibiYour book is absolutely awful despite your fancy artwork You ve totally lost my respect after I ve read your book today In fact I couldn t even finish it Your book is problematic in so many ways It s over the top racist and sexist and shallow I ve never read a book before that glorifies and romanticizes sexual violence so much On every other page your female protagonist was raped objectified or victimized Every Arabic man in your book was a brutal camel riding rapist with no morality or redeeming ualities at all The only reason Arabic men exist in your world is to abuse women and the only reason Arabic women exist is to please men who can t help being rapists Your uotes from the uran in the midst of all the female nakedness and in between scenes of sexual violence felt extremely offensive And I m not even religiousThese uotes added nothing substantial to your shallow story Reading your pretentious offensive and ultimately pointless book was an extremely uncomfortable experience
