    Epub Lissa ePUB Ê Ý bvlive.co.uk lissa kindle, Lissa PDFThis is as close to the perfect book as I have ever read I say this as someone who writes on comics religion who is doing research on comics cancer who is a convert to Islam and is a Caucasian American I know not everyone shares my demographics and my interests but if I can't praise LISSA then who can? It's a daring beautiful intelligent and enriching book touching on so many urgent topics primarily the ethnography of the Arab Spring in Cairo but also cancer research preventative medicine friendship politics sexism loss patriotism etc with such skill not to mention art The collaboration between Hamdy Nye Bao Brewer and Parenteau is a wonder Upon first read of LISSA I'm frankly in awe and I plan to reread it again as soon as I can regain a critical vantage pointUntil then I'm going to shout from my little soapbox This is a must read I love that I finally had a chance

    Epub Lissa ePUB Ê Ý bvlive.co.uk lissa kindle, Lissa PDFUpon first glance LISSA comes off as the sort of book that I would not at all be interested in For one the art style isn’t the type that typically attracts me because it is the sort of style that one would generally associate with books geared to a much younger audience Secondly the book upon first glance seems to deal with the Egyptian revolution in some fashion This isn’t in itself a bad thing but because the Egyptian revolution is too grand and important a topic I find that most graphic novels that have dealt with it in the past have done so rather poorly Understandable giv
