Nabiel Kanan is webcomicking!

A number of years ago I stumbled across a self-published comic series about teenagers waiting for their exam results called Exit, credited to one N. Kanan (the N turned out to stand for Nabiel). The art was gorgeous, the character interaction was fun, and the snippets of poetry in the narration were quickly dropped. Caliber reprinted, continued and collected it, and Nabiel went on to do a couple of graphic novels for NBM, Lost Girl (not to be confused with Alan Moore and Melinda Gebbie’s ludicrously expensive lit-smut Lost Girls) and The Birthday Riots.

I stumbled across his blog this afternoon, and it turns out he’s doing a webcomic, About Charlotte. It’s just started so I can’t tell you much about it other than Nabiel’s blurb – “The story revolves around Cassie, Dom and their mutual friend, Charlotte” – and it’s running fortnightly in newspaper strip format. But this guy’s good, so take a chance.
