11-episode satirical comic

Funded: The Public Source

The Public Source is a Beirut-based independent media organization. It is dedicated to reporting on socioeconomic and environmental crises afflicting Lebanon since the onset of neoliberal governance in the 90s, and providing political commentary on events unfolding since October 17.


Through NAWA IF’s support, The Public Source produced its first in-house, 11-episode online comic series titled Progeny on Comictern, the publication’s platform for fictional and non-fictional comics. This included an English translation from the original Arabic. Set in an unnamed small Mediterranean country, Progeny is a satirical dark short story that examines how power reproduces itself in the aftermath of disaster.
