Young David Collins has finally listened to the late Dr. Lang’s recorded message regarding the connection between Barnabas and his creation, Adam: the gist of it is that if Adam dies, Barnabas will become a vampire again.

“Funded by the European Union, among others, the festival’s goal is to promote new talent and encourage cartooning in Palestine. An exhibition in Bethlehem’s Manger Square by participating cartoon artists will include work by Baha Boukhari, a political cartoonist for Ramallah-based Al Ayyam newspaper, architect and cartoonist Samir Harb, and Yara Bamieh, an architect, graphic designer and illustrator. French cartoonist Maximilien Le Roy, who in 2009 published a graphic novel about Gaza, and a year later a book about the wall in the West Bank, will conduct a beginner workshop in the Aida Refugee Camp on Saturday. Journalist and comic script -writer Albert Drandov will give a talk about his work and experience on the closing day this Sunday.”
