The historical fiction graphic novel Zanján, which I created with C. Aaron Kreader, is now available in a German-language edition from the Offenbach-based publisher Mazloum.
“Harnessing the Sun” is about navigating the space between the person we are and the person we want to be. It’s also about race and class and assimilation and lots of other complicated stuff. But mostly, it’s about the destruction of one woman’s planet and how she responds. It’s out now in Daikaiju Zine #004.
I’ll be reading “The Listeners” at this year’s MoComCOnline. (Click here to register for free.) Like many other growing comics conventions around the country, MoComCon is hosted by the library system, and it’s a regular reminder of how supportive and essential libraries are to writers. I chose “The Listeners” in part because it was published
Navid’s search for truth will take him from the quiet village where he grew up to the greatest cities of nineteenth-century Persia — and ultimately into the middle of a war that will tear apart families, challenge the country’s most powerful leaders, and force him to question everything that he thought he knew.
Zanján is a graphic novel based on actual events.
