What happens when a traditional writer decides to jump the chasm and venture into the world of comics and graphic novels? In the case of Lisa Lim’s work, you get an incredible piece of art that’s home grown, organic and expressed in a way that would be impossible to teach in any art school or university.

My Egyptian Fortune Cookie is one of my favorite comics by Lim because she gives us an honest glimpse into a painful segment of her childhood and compliments these stories with powerful yet charming illustrations.
