Craig Thompson’s long-awaited Habibi comes out this September from Pantheon. The book has been six years in the making and Craig has been kind enough to take bits of time away from writing and drawing to give us fans a look at what he’s been up to on his blog.

Today Craig launched HabibiBook.com, a full website completely devoted to his newest book, including his processes for making the book, and tour information (Craig will be making the rounds at Comic Con, so watch out SF!).

The publisher describes the 672-page hardcover graphic novel as follows:

“Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, HABIBI tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, by circumstance, and by the love that grows between them.

At once contemporary and timeless, HABIBI gives us a love story of astounding resonance: a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and, most potently, the magic of storytelling.”
