Daqqet El Alarm

“Daqqet El Alarm” (The Alarm Has Sounded) was created for the second edition of Zeez Collective‘s “Al Jarima”, an anthology of comics, illustrations, and writings on Lebanon’s October 17 protests.

For this comic, I interviewed Lebanese hip hop artist Wael Kodeih a.k.a. Rayess Bek, whose track “Thawra” had become an unofficial anthem of the protests, even though it was actually produced back in 2011. This comic presents the story of the creation of the track in Rayess Bek’s own words.
