I saw Holy Terror in the store today, shelved right next to Craig Thompson's new book, Habibi. Habibi is a complex, sympathetic portrayal of Muslim characters grappling with issues of morality and survival. It seemed like the polar opposite of Miller's blockheaded revenge fantasy of pseudo-Batman punching Muslims in the face. The juxtaposition of the two books was the strongest possible advertisement for one or the other, for making a choice either way. I chose Habibi.
Seriously, I had been thinking that maybe I would wait a while until Habibi came out in paperback, or was otherwise discounted, before buying it. And I had been interested in giving Holy Terror a look, maybe getting it at some point. But seeing them together, it suddenly became important to me to choose, right then, what I was going to support with my comics-buying dollars. I guess I kinda tricked myself, but I don't regret my decision or the statement that it made.
