Go, Read: Profile Of Mana Neyestani


There's a lengthy profile here of Iranian cartoonist Mana Neyestani, famously jailed in 2006 for a cartoon that enraged members of that country's Azeri minority and currently living in France. Neyestani will always be of interest because of that horrifying series of incidents, and as a member of Iran's exiles community, but there's also a book published in France -- and possibly elsewhere -- about the experience. He's also apparently doing a politically-aware domestic strip that has an Iranian readership despite being published outside of the country, which is something I didn't know.
