New York, NY, September 7, 2011- Midtown Comics in New York City is proud to present Craig Thompson signing his new book HABIBI at Midtown Comics Downtown on Tuesday, September 20th from 12:00PM to 2:00PM.

HABIBI will be available at all three Midtown Comics stores on September 20th. Purchase is required to attend signing.

Craig Thompson is best known for his 2003 graphic novel Blankets, for which he won several awards for including three Harvey Awards, two Eisner Awards, and two Ignatz Awards. His work also includes his 1999 graphic novel Good-bye, Chunky Rice and his 2004 graphic novel/travelogue Carnet de Voyage.

HABIBI is a deeply romantic story that explores and celebrates the beauty and cruelty, the complexity and depths of the Islamic world. Craig’s stunning artwork is matched by the haunting stories of his characters’ lives. Set in a mythical Middle East, at once contemporary and timeless, HABIBI is a parable about our relationship to the natural world, about the cultural divide between the First World and the Third World, and about the common heritage of Christianity and Islam. The magic of storytelling allows us to see the fragility embedded in cruelty, to understand how beauty can preserve us from destruction and how love can save us from loss of hope.
