Arabic adult comic strips have been around at least since the 1970’s, if not earlier, and have represented an array of interests, topics and styles. The last decade, especially post the 2011 Arab spring/revolutions, has seen a surge in the production of Arabic comix and graphic novels. These comix and graphic novels are discussing interesting and important social and political issues, using exciting visual aesthetics.
