Embark on a different kind of superhero comic with Malaak: Angel of Peace, Lebanon's first epic adventure.
In a Lebanon that seems destined to endless war, the ancient guardians of the land send one of their own in human form to work out the source of the evil and put an end to it. She is Malaak, who becomes the superheroine known as the Guardian. As the warmongers quickly turn out to be not human at all, we discover whole worlds are colliding and the situation is not as straightforward as it seemed...
Begun in 2006 and planned to run over 7 volumes, Malaak has been hailed for breaking ground in the region with its empowerment of women, cultural setting and exploration of local folklore and collective memory.
This app brings you the first 3 volumes (over 100 pages of story) for free. Volume 4 is now available in the in-app store, to be joined later by more features.
