Problem

In Palestine, we find there is a lack of literature in the art form showing the world -and the Palestinian people-, Palestine’s culture in the eyes of Palestinians. Comic stories enhance the imagination of the readers, and encourage them to wonder in multiple worlds and realities; in this sense, there is a very limited offer of this graphic stories about Palestine and the Palestinian identity. And not only in the form of comic stories, there are not sufficient sources of cultural entertainment that contribute to the collective memory of our society and generations to come.

Solution

Tales of Elia is a first on its kind Palestinian comical series of Tales-manga stories that will be published in Arabic and English, creating a medieval world with new maps, new challenges, and new heroes pursuing righteousness, reflecting Palestinian identity and culture. Its a creation of WestrosBank project.

Your contribution will be used in design, writing, editing, publishing and marketing the Palestinian new literature art, and help us to sustain the process to issue the comics periodically.
