Graphic novel remains, for me, a term of art without substantive affect on my vision. That doesn't stop Thompson from appropriating such images for himself, nor does it make such images less troublesome, but he is at least aware that he's treading on sensitive ground. The religious aspect is prominent in this work, sort of becoming a primer on the Qur'an at least for me , while also noting some similarities and differences as to what the "People of the Book" believe, and revealing the power of stories to one's survival. And once Zam or Habibi, the male protagonist witnesses one of these rapes, both his consciousness and his dreams are plagued by sensual reenactments of her rape.
