Exclusive Interview: “Shubeik Lubeik” Author / Artist Deena Mohamed


If you know anything about wishes — be they granted by djinn, monkey’s paws, or some other magical way — you know there’s often a price to be paid. But what if the price was monetary; what if the more you paid for a wish, the more likely it would come true, and with no strings attached? This is the premise (sans the djinn) of Deena Mohamed’s first graphic novel, Shubeik Lubeik (hardcover, Kindle). In the following email interview, Mohamed explains where she got the idea for this urban fantasy tale, and what influenced it.
