The Smuggler by Milan Hulsing


A man invented the city of Khaldiya in order to collect the salaries of an imaginary local police force. He produces fake documents and builds the city out of clay in his own home, as a realistic depiction of his own imaginings. He maximizes expense claims by inventing rebellions that need to be crushed by the police – violently, of course. This twist lends the story a political charge and enables the storyteller to criticize police corruption, detailing a time when the police were either bullying citizens, or in a brothel. The graphic novel was published in Dutch during the beginning of the Arab Spring, a few days before the uprising in Tahrir Square began.
