It's the end of Ramadan so Eid Mubarak to one and all! For this episode—our Eid special—we roll back the clock and discuss (arguably) the first comic book ever created called The Hamzanama. (We don't know if it's THE first comic book ever because we're not scholars so chill). The Hamzanama came about because the Mughal emperor Akbar the Great commissioned a series of paintings to turn the epic of Hamza into a comic book back in the 1500s! So buckle up for a very casual yet thorough history lesson on comics and how they came about through oral storytelling traditions dating back to the 600s. SHOW NOTES:
