Book Review: Cairo by G. Willow Wilson and M. K. Perker

cairoThis is a story of magical realism involving a disparate group of strangers brought together by a stolen hookah which is home to a jinn who is avoiding a magician/gangster who wants the box that the jinn is protecting. Perker’s art is in black and white and transports the reader to the streets of Cairo. I love Wilson’s writing from both Ms. Marvel and Alif the Unseen, and this is another example of her ability to humanize her characters in a way that makes the readers love them, flaws and all. I would recommend this to fans of Neil Gamain’s Sandman.
