[2019] - “Al-JArima 1”, Zeez Collective
[2019] - Open Studios, Ashkal Alwan 

is an experimental comic that was first published digitally in the first issue of Al-Jarima
by Zeez Collective. “Al Jarima (The Crime) began as a conceptual collaborative project, where each of the collective’s members speculated about a mysterious but purely fictional death that took place in Beirut’s Martyr’s Square. The first issue was published on March 22, 2019 in the form of a newspaper, as a comment on how the media can put different spins on the same story and jump to different conclusions.” Find the complete issue at
