Best of Enemies

June 25th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Last fall I voiced my excitement at getting to work on my first David B. graphic novel, Best of Enemies. The first volume of a history of relations between the Middle East, it’s co-scripted by Islamic scholar Jean-Pierre Filiu, and covers the period from 1783 to 1953. It came out last month from Self-Made Hero! Check it out!

Douglas Wolk covers it in a Sunday New York Times comics roundup, where he also covers in capsule form two other foreign titles—Guy Delisle’s Jerusalem, from Drawn & Quarterly, and Kiki de Montparnasse by Catel Muller and Jose-Luis Bocquet, also from Self-Made Hero—like many reviewers, neglecting in all three cases to mention that these books were translated (by Helge Dascher and Nora Mahony, respectively).

Where am I?
