Summary ß E-book, or Kindle E-pub ✓ Hamid SulaimanTo judge this book is by taking it as a piece of artMuch of my depreciation of this book is a problem I have with the whole genre graphic novels and comics I can t stand trivial text If this genre is to be a compound of two diverse arts the art of literature and the art of drawing then I expect the artists of this genre to try to excel in both of these involved arts And the conversation text in this book is commonplace in an embarrassing way trivial artless below mediocre simply bad Now if the pictures were great they might save some of the negative impression I had rom the book And I must admit that unlike the text the pictures do attempt at being art It can arouse an impression of dark times in a dark place Nothing unexpected in view of the topic appropriate But why are the characters so The Pavement Arena flat so indistinguishable This doesn t make sense as the dramatis personae in the beginning of the book and the development of the story treats the characters clearly as individuals as distinguishable And the same is trueor the locations Undamaged houses and rubble are hardly distinguishable either do believe that the is mourning over the loss of his country Syria and he is clearly in do believe that the author is mourning over the loss of his country Syria and he is clearly in of the political anti Assad opposition not in Dungeon favor of the islamist opposition though but he treats the country without love when he draws itAll in all this seems to be a rambling book to me I need to get my information and my art about the tragedy of Syriarom somewhere else Any suggestions It s near impossible to tell an uplifting or a comprehensive story of the still ongoing wars within Syria and this book doesn t attempt to do so but tells a story of complicated situations

There is a constant refrain of x number of days
and y number of people die It s a reminder of the toll but it also serves to start causing a detachment and makes me think of that awful old Stalin uote The death of one man is a tragedy the death of millions is a statistic It s staggering to think how this story is set like ive or six years ago and how the death and suffering has just continued unabated in the interim But again the creator doesn t manage to bring this home to me between the covers of his bookAnd no the author having a character acknowledge the cheesiness of an amnesia storyline in the script does not then make the amnesia storyline not cheesyThe art is On Disgust full of big black blotches that at times seem less like illustrations and like Rorschach test inkblots Characters are drawn in an almost impressionistic style with a minimum of lines so they are sometimes difficult to tell apart Action is sometimes difficult toollowI was hoping or something that would educate and move me but instead I m left wishing I had read something else another great graphic novel about middle eastern conflict although sulaimans style of completely black and white ormal than cartoon is different to almost all graphic novels i ve read before i really enjoyed it except white New Menopausal Years formal than cartoon is different to almost all graphic novels i ve read before i really enjoyed it except onerame parodying the sistine chapel with two characters passing a zootgosh i couldnt help but cringe good Faja (Naslouchač, for basic knowledge of the early stages of the syrian civil war leaving u with lots of pointers of where else to research etc also highlighting hypocrisyrom some of the powers involved the way it points out where the arms are sold rom Dope book Hamid It is hard to ind the right words to say about this book The war in Syria is atrocious and abominable and we need to know about it I am not going to sayPass And Y Number Of People Die It S A
