Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood and Persepolis 2: The Story of a Return by Marjane Satrapi are unique comic books that you can read in a day or two as it’s impossible to keep it down. They are graphical autobiography. It’s fascinating and scary at the same time. It’s startling to finally understand the history of Iran especially through a kid’s eyes. This is the first time that I became familiar with Iran’s history. I am definitely eager to read more about Iran.
