The blog By the Firelight tipped us off to some free comics available online from Beirut. Released by the literary magazine Samandall the stories are called Picture Stories from here and there. While they don’t require the art to be from Lebanon or in Arabic or French, most of the writers and artists from the first four issues are from that region of the world.
Issues zero through three are available for free online. So take this free opportunity to see what artists and writers from another country are producing.
