Middle East Mag Loves ARMY@LOVE


NOX, a high quality English language men’s magazine published in Jordan, has named ARMY@LOVE: THE HOT ZONE CLUB to it’s list of TOP TEN GRAPHIC NOVELS FOR THE MIDDLE EAST. It’s an eclectic list drawn from all over the globe, with a number of titles by Arab cartoonists:

1) METRO by Magdi Shafee
2) ARMY@LOVE by Rick Veitch
3) SAMANDAL by various
4) PALESTINE by Joe Sacco
5) ARAB IN AMERICA by Toufic el-Rassi
6) MALAAK: ANGEL OF PEACE by Joumana Medlej
7) IN THE SHADOW OF NO TOWERS by Art Spiegelman
8 JINNARRATION by Asia Alfasi
9) PERSOPOLIS by Marjane Satrapi
10) CAIRO by G. Willow Wilson

Since NOX’s website is still under construction, and the magazine probably isn’t distributed in the USA, I’ve scanned the short interview editor Farah Shanti conducted with me for the spread.

This is probably a good place to mention that sales for ARMY@LOVE have been going up. I’m told the recent relist of the first trade ordered 20% higher than the original solicitation. If you haven’t read ARMY@LOVE, hop on over the where you can pick up Vol 1 THE HOT ZONE CLUB and preorder Vol 2 GENERATION PWNED. The new mini-series, ARMY@LOVE: ART OF WAR will be solicited in the new PREVIEWS too.
