In bustling modern-day Cairo, the lives of a drug runner, a down-on-his-luck journalist, an American expatriate, a young activist, an Israeli soldier, and a genie are interwoven as they navigate the city's streets and spiritual underworld to find a stolen hooka sought by a wrathful gangster-magician.

Continuing my G. Willow Wilson run with “Cairo”. A fun graphic novel set in modern Middle East complete with jinn, the devil, magic and mystery.

What do you get when you mix a hash smuggler, a lost Israeli soldier, a Cairene journalist, a Lebanese-American with secrets, an idealistic California Girl, and a jinn? A bananas graphic novel about choice and sacrifice. I was a little worried going in that I wouldn‘t like it because I like Ms Marvel too much, but this has the same quippy, dry humor only more violence and magic. Good art, but I wish it had been in color.

Next read for the #NCCBC (non conformist comic book club)...Cairo! I love learning about the insane amount of female talent in comics, it inspires me.

Mehso-so

Some of my friends really loved this story - it didn't grab me, unfortunately. It was fine, just a middle of the road GN for me.
