Lissa By Sherine Hamdy

's family is faced with a difficult decision about kidney transplantation Their friendship is put to the test when these medical crises reveal stark differences in their perspectivesuntil revolutionary unrest in Egypt changes their lives fore. Lissa is a fascinating combination of academic research presented through a narrative graphic novel It s an intriguing way of trying to make scholarly work accessible though I think this particular book failed a bit both as a good reflection of the academic research but also as a compelling narrative Though the creators were obviously trying to avoid putting out a 1000 page book there needed to be a bit depth to make either aspect of the comic memorable However admirable efforts and still a good read

As young girls in Cairo Anna and Layla strike up an unlikely friendship that crosses class cultural and religious divides Years later Anna learns that she may carry the hereditary cancer gene responsible for her mother's death Meanwhile Layla. The jacket flap touts this as the first book in a new series that realizes ethnographic research in graphic novel form Sounds potentially boring I know but it s actually pretty cool Anna and Layla strike up an unlikely friendship as young girls in Cairo When Anna s mother dies of cancer she is forced to return to the US to live though the two friends promise to stay in touch In later years each faces a medical crisis Anna the choice of preventive surgery to decrease her chances of sharing her mother s fate and Layla her father s kidney failure and refusal to consider a transplant and their friendship is put to the test due to stark differences in their perspective And then in 2011 revolutionary unrest in Egypt changes their lives forever The best approach I think with this graphic novel is to ignore all the academic foofaraw Don t read the jacket flaps Don t read the text about the ethnoGRAPHIC imprint Don t read the Afterword and the Appendices Just read the story Try not to go into it with a bunch of fears and expectations You ll appreciate the story Trust me Yeah the art is crude but serviceable But it s still a good story All the academic stuff is best appreciated afterward There is a lot of it We re talking Criterion Collection levels of extras here My favorite bits are probably the discussion of the storytelling which point out some of the subtler aspects of the artwork and the way in which the story was broken down If this book is a typical example I m looking forward to the rest of the series Recommended
