Cypher Comics

In July 2020, Front Line Defenders launched Cypher (@cypher_comics on Instagram), a digital comics magazine that advances the organization’s storytelling and narrative framing work in collaboration with and in support of HRDs. Working with artists from around the world, including the award-winning visual storyteller, Beldan Sezen, as creative director, the ’zine is a monthly publication featuring stories of HRDs, their work and the challenges they face.

If you are interested in an annual subscription to receive printed editions of Cypher, please email campaigns@frontlinedefenders.org, with 'Subscription' in the subject line, and you will be sent more information about options.

Cypher 02 features an audio interview with Palestinian HRD and artist Hafez Omar - listen to the interview by clicking on the 'Hafez Talks' buttons when viewing the comcis in the 'zine viewer below (the PDF file does not support the audio files).
