Zahra’s Paradise is a webcomic by two Iranians, dealing with the aftermath of the protests and turmoil following last summer’s disputed elections. Out of concern for the safety of their families, they are publishing it under the pseudonyms Amir and Khalil.

The webcomic is being serialized on the First Second website. It will eventually be published as a graphic novel by the same publisher. The really cool thing is that it’s beinf simultaneously released in 8 different languages: English, Farsi, Arabic, French, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, and Korean (with new languages being added as volunteers step up to help spread the word).

Canada’s Globe and Mail has a great article about the comic, and insight from its creators:

“Set at the height of last year’s bloody “Green revolution,” Zahra’s Paradise tells the story of a young Tehrani blogger and his mother (also named Zahra), who are searching for his vanished brother, Mehdi. The story is drawn in spare, flowing lines, stepping readers through a bleak vision of Tehran after the protests, emptied of life and littered with the wounded.”
