Egyptian Graphic Novelist Magdy Al-Shafee Speaks at Italian Festival

Al-Shafee appeared at the NUES festival along with the Italian translation of his graphic novel, Metro, which has unfortunately been banned here in Cairo. (Thanks to Barbara Benini for sending the video.)

Also: I also just heard from one of the organizers of the first-ever Arabic ComicCon, set to be held in Abu Dhabi. He said that there should be an announcement with show dates and specifics within the week.
