The Nib

“The Dead Coast” is a two-page comic created for the Drugs issue of The Nib‘s print publication, in collaboration with writer Yazan Al-Saadi.

For our story, Yazan interviewed a Middle Eastern hash dealer, who also wrote rap lyrics. The result was something like an illustrated music video, where the drug dealer takes the reader through each step of his process, all while spitting cryptic rhymes that allude to his circumstances and motivations.
