Book Cover Cairo

In the new graphic novel, Cairo, five strangers — a drug runner, a journalist, an American ex-pat, a troubled student, and an Israeli soldier — find themselves on a quest to recover a powerful stolen hookah. The thriller is written by journalist G. Willow Wilson and drawn by M.K. Perker.

Wilson, a freelance journalist who splits her time between Egypt and the U.S., discusses the new novel and how she came to write her first comic book.
