The Wolf of Baghdad

- a memoir of a lost homeland by The Surreal McCoy

 With funding from Arts Council England and Dangoor Education (in memory of Sir Naim Dangoor) I have drawn a graphic memoir that tells of my family’s memories of their lost Iraqi homeland. It is also designed to be shown as a slideshow (motion comic) with its own soundtrack which will be accompanied by musicians playing live.


NEWS! The Wolf of Baghdad will be published as a graphic memoir in January 2020 by leading independent UK publisher Myriad Editions.


Next performance of the motion comic: UK Jewish Film Festival, Tuesday 12th November 2020 at the Phoenix Cinema, East Finchley, London. Details here.
