The Protests in Iran Through Comics

Marjane Satrapi, the Iranian creator of the critically-acclaimed graphic novel “Persepolis” about her childhood during the 1979 revolution, has stepped forward to declare that Mir Hossein Mousavi was the true winner of the recent Iranian election.

“Ahmadinejad received only 12 percent of the vote, not 65 percent,” said Marjane Satrapi, who was the director of Oscar-nominated film Persepolis.

Tom Spurgeon of The Comics Reporter also posts a rundown of Iranian cartoons about the incredible protests taking place, along with the disturbing news that in addition to the journalists arrested, one paper has been shut down for posting a critical cartoon of Ahmedinejad. Andrew Sullivan, meanwhile, points to photos of Iranian street art by protestors.
