Críticas:

The character depth, plot complexity, and storytelling in this lyrical, sexual, and scholarly epic would make any novelist proud Thompson strings compositions that are often more tapestry than comics and that balance graphic design, illumination, calligraphy, and cartooning in steady alignment. It is unfair to expect two masterpieces in a row from anyone, but here Thompson sits securely in that rarefied air. Booklist, starred review
A lushly epic love story that's both inspiring and heartbreaking In addition to richly detailed story panels, the gorgeous Arabic ornamental calligraphy makes each page an individual work of art. A dense, swirling dervish of a tale this will be the most talked about graphic novel of the fall. Publishers Weekly, starred review
The exquisite beauty and deep magic of this Arabian Nights-style love story cannot be overstated...Habibi is certain to join the ranks of graphic novels that expand our understanding of not only the genre but also the world it describes. Library Journal, starred review
Habibi lifts the bar of graphic storytelling to new heights, both by the intricate, dramatic density and breathtaking scholarship of Thompson s panels and by the sheer scale and decorative beauty of his flowing, roiling, protean style. Thompson is the Charles Dickens of the genre, able to capture all the scary, heartbreaking, brave, uplifting details of his characters fates while orchestrating the big-picture machinations that connect them to the lives and times of his readers Habibi is a masterpiece that surely is one of a kind. Elle Magazine
A graphic novel that is sure to attract attention A mature in all its meanings glimpse into a world few Westerners are at home with, and Thompson is respectful throughout. - Kirkus
Exquisite HABIBI is a remarkable feat of research, care, and black ink, and a reminder that all "People of the book," despite the division of their individual traditions, share a mosaic of stories. Zadie Smith, Harper s Magazine
Habibi has classic written all over it. It s a modern literary triumph, a book so broad and magical in its scope, only a master could pull it off. This is no ordinary comic, it is a complete work of art. Beautiful, thought provoking, both timeless and of its time An awe-inspiring read you can t afford to miss Grovel, graphic novel reviews
Easily the best graphic novel of the year, and probably the decade Thompson s line work here is beyond brilliant, combining myriad styles and capturing the rich historical legacy of the cultural and religious volumes that inspired it. This is a work that truly changes the game and sets a new standard for all the graphic novels that follow it. GraphicNovelReporter.com

"Craig Thompson's new graphic novel, Habibi, is a masterpiece. This isn't an opinion. This book is a gorgeous object; to make it, Thompson apparently covered himself in honey and rolled around in a thousand years of Arabic calligraphy and Islamic art, and the result is breathtaking. - The Boston Phoenix

Erotic, grotesque, and profoundly moving I don t think I ve ever read a book quite like this, and I expect I ll be thinking about it for a long, long time. Boing Boing
Layered, daring, and brilliantly told an intricate story of love, religion, desire, survival, poverty, hope. It s drenched in metaphor and rich with double meanings. Yet for all it takes on, Habibi feels light on its feet; throughout, we feel Thompson reveling in his skills as a writer and artist. Its exuberance, even in its darkest moments, feels somehow celebratory. I m not sure that I ve read a better graphic novel Thompson s own work is manically elaborate and ingeniously laid out; he s become expert at moving the eye through exploding, dexterous panels. The Millions

Mere words or at least my mere words seemed not enough to even try to convey just how intricate and ornate, lush and seductive, arabesque and sometimes knowingly grotesque this artistic epic is a visual masterpiece. Comic Riffs, Washington Post blog
Like the elegantly dense mosaic patterns that Thompson fills the background of his pages with, Habibi is a book that weaves isolated shapes into an overpowering tableaux, its pieces carefully fit together and subtly repeated until a gorgeous unity emerges. National Post
Relentlessly virtuosic... It is a tribute to Thompson's skill as a cartoonist that the transition from an old fashioned Orient to modern Babylon leaves few visual seams." New York Times Book Review
While the storytelling is gripping, surprising, and emotionally and intellectually hard-hitting, it almost takes a back seat to the artwork that is alternately robust and fragile. Thompson's deft, assured lines have never been more delicately and profoundly inked than here This book is a monument of intelligent, vibrant design, all in service to the story. Barnes and Noble review
Brilliantly imagined celebrates the power of the artist to tell a story with ink teased into magisterial letters and visual images. Newsweek
Thompson makes a good third of the other illustrators out there look like total chumps. Each page is carefully designed with recurring motifs that draw from sources like the Qur an and other storytelling traditions to add multiple layers of meaning to every moment. Scenes of city life and vast endless oceans of sand are drawn with such attention to detail that you ll be staggered imagining a human being crafting the images with human hands and commonly available tools It s a story told with technical precision and real, honest-to-gosh passion, and if you cry at the end it won t be because you ve been successfully manipulated it ll be because this world and these characters have come to mean something to you, and you ll miss them once you reach the final page. Richmond News
If you haven t been exposed to the work of Craig Thompson yet, you have been deprived of a true aesthetic experience To say the work is visually stunning is an understatement. Thompson s art is simple black and white inking, yet his ink strokes convey a sense of live movement as if you re watching the characters move across the page don t dismiss Habibi as a book of pretty pictures. While the artwork is incredible, Craig Thompson s Habibi is a book that will affect your heart. Wit and Fancy blog site
Artistically, it's the most gorgeous book I read this year, with compositions and layouts weaving together effortlessly and with endless depth and detail an outrageous success, and worth every bit of time Thompson spent on it. As great as this year was in comics, Habibi might have been the best thing I read in all of comics all year, and it makes me all the more excited to see what Thompson will be up to next. MultiversityComics.com, Best Graphic Novel of the 2011
The intricacy of patterns and motifs (both visible and metaphorical) hold the text together and astound in their complexity. In the world of Habibi, art is never divorced from meaning; drawings are symbolic verse, words twisted into new shapes Habibi is about the power of words to carry and envelop us, and in Thompson s beautifully written novel, the reader experiences a similar magic. ALARM Press
Habibi is a confident, powerfully drawn graphic novel, telling its tale with passion, humor and an endless understanding of the human condition A graphic novel masterpiece that explores what it means to be human through religious story, slavery, prostitution and personal and societal struggles within the industrial and third worlds. Shelf Awareness, starred review

A lush commentary on love and lust, wealth and want, religion and storytelling the power in this tale lies in human passion, sometimes cruel and sometimes sweet, combined with its geometric precision and deep sense of the sacred. Harvard Crimson
Lushly illustrated, at times unbearably sad and unexpectedly erotic. Paste Magazine
To read Habibi is to sink into the sensuous arabesque patterns that decorate its pages. Steeped in the imagery and storytelling traditions of the Muslim world, this densely layered love story is as grand and sustained a performance as any cartoonist has published Thompson s fluid, evocative artwork is pretty miraculous too. Time Magazine

Habibi is like a big, rousing, unabashedly tear-jerking Dumas novel, with fascinatingly intricate designs and fabulous tales on almost every page. Salon

It s impossible to read this book and not walk away with a deeper, more profound understanding or appreciation for not both Arab culture and for the subtle and varied ways in which populations portrayed as enemies are in fact alike. Thanks to Thompson s deft storytelling, Habibi s seemingly daunting 700-plus pages can go by in a breeze; you won t want them to, though, because his delicate, yet ornate art make this a story you won t want to finish. Deathandtaxesmag.com
Audaciously ambitious. Just the decorative and calligraphic elements of its design alone are enough to recommend this volume. Icv2 review
Executed with enormous empathy and something that in earlier times would have been called divine inspiration, Habibi is an extraordinary milestone in the world of drawn stories. Who would have thought that black ink could make such complex, soul-filling music? FT.com
Habibi is a triumph of creativity. Thompson dazzles us with his pen strokes, with his mastery of storytelling, his research, plotting and characterisation. The book is destined to become an instant classic, confirming the author's position among not only the most masterful of graphic novelists but our finest contemporary writers, regardless of medium. The Independent
A fascinating exploration of a foreign cultural tradition by an American cartooning auteur at the height of his powers never anything less than a breathtaking visual and intellectual experience. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Brilliantly imagined it celebrates the power of the artist to tell a story with ink teased into magisterial letters and visual images. Daily Beast
The art and lettering are both stunning and Thompson has rendered a complicated, dense story that truly elevates the medium. Forces of Geek Holiday Gift Guide
A subtle and engrossing tale that encompasses everything from Islam to climate change Thompson is a consummate storyteller, and his talent shines through in every line, every frame, and every speech bubble In a medium that s still dominated by masked crusaders, Habibi stands testament to the ongoing versatility of old-fashioned pen and paper. Culture Mob review
Craig Thompson doesn't fail to impress with yet another beautifully crafted graphic novel The art is breathtaking, and the imagery that pulls the whole thing together help the reader step out of the everyday and enjoy this rich mythology illuminating universal human truths about love It is a beautiful book.The illustrations are exquisite.Holding it in one's hands, and reading it for the first time, is quite the experience. Lari is Writing blog review
Thompson is a superb artist Habibi is a success. Washington Times
The work of an artist creating at the height of his powers with a confidence and an artistry that reveals grace in every pen stroke, in every panel, and it deftly makes greatness look easy The scope of this book is simply massive and what it achieves is not only unique for a comic book or graphic novel, but also important and so relevant to the times in which we all live This is an important book that, hopefully, will be read by as wide an audience as possible. It completely deserves all the attention and all the praise that s sure to come its way. Craig Thompson has created something truly special here that will surely be read and reflected upon for generations to come. TheShortBox.com
Habibi isn't just Thompson's greatest work yet; it's one of the most beautiful novels I've read this year The artwork is elegant, striking, reverent. The Portland Mercury

This is almost without question one of the most important graphic novel releases of the year. It overflows with elegant, elaborate and brilliantly composed hybrid imagery. warmoth.org
Habibi reminds one of nothing so much as the work of novelist John Barth, with its clear love of patterns, narrative, and beauty incredibly compelling and readable on many levels. Paste Magazine
Utterly engrossing Dodola s and Zam s stories are interwoven with the stories they learned as children, the underpinnings of Islam. This lends not only beauty and texture but also meaning and redemption to their suffering, and Thompson s handling of the religious elements something that might have been awkward or controversial is restrained and graceful. His black-and-white drawings, often incorporating Arabic script, are at times floaty and feverish but always perfectly clear. He breaks up dreamy exposition with tightly structured action sequences, and the pages couldn t be prettier. As always, his economical writing is deeply moving. Habibi is a book not to be missed. Bookpage
A fairy tale that's by turns tender and bawdy and brutally dark Habibi is a stunningly beautiful art object: 672 painstakingly intricate pages that astonish with their sheer level of detail, the way a ship made out of toothpicks, or the Eiffel Tower up close, astonishes. East Bay Express
Well-researched (Thompson reportedly worked on this project for more than a decade), this dark and mature adventure tale melds the modern Middle Eastern world with its rich mythology from the Quran, and is detailed with its mix of the area s landscape, people, symbology and particularly the Arabic calligraphy in all its ornamentation a page-turner that might be best consumed in smaller bits to better appreciate the depth and breadth of the story. Honolulu Star-Advertiser
These are real people living on the page in ink, and Thompson has sculpted characters that are perfectly imperfect Habibi stands as a new masterwork in American comics, and a graphic novel seriously worthy of sharing shelf space with Salman Rushdie and Umberto Eco. Bleeding Cool

With Habibi, Craig Thompson elevates the graphic novel form to even higher levels. GraphicNovelReporter.com
Part adventure epic, part exploration of Middle Eastern folklore, Habibi is a work of tremendous scope and jaw-dropping ambition Habibi looks to be Thompson's next great book. Critical Mob
A massive masterpiece Habibi s pages are rich with ornamentation. Willamette Weekly
Habibi is a visual banquet, a veritable feast of brushstrokes and intricate detail. Thompson uses eastern design and the beautiful Arabic script to weave the story together in a soft, organic flow that floats along from panel to panel, page to page in rich, breathtaking beauty a truly magnificent book, one that is compelling, thoughtfu...

Reseña del editor:

From the internationally acclaimed author of Blankets ( A triumph for the genre. Library Journal), a highly anticipated new graphic novel.

Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, Habibi tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, by circumstance, and by the love that grows between them. We follow them as their lives unfold together and apart; as they struggle to make a place for themselves in a world (not unlike our own) fueled by fear, lust, and greed; and as they discover the extraordinary depth and frailty of their connection.
At once contemporary and timeless, Habibi gives us a love story of astounding resonance: a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and, most potently, the magic of storytelling."
