Joseph Kai is a Lebanese comics author currently living in Paris, exploring the realms of realistic and speculative fiction. Joseph’s debut graphic novel "L’Intranquille" (Casterman, 2021) just got released in English by Street Noise Books (US) under the title "Restless".

In 2010, Joseph Kai became a contributing member of Samandal, publishing several short works and later taking on the role of editor in chief for "Geography" in 2015, "3000" in 2020 and "Cutes", a collection of queer and trans* comics in 2023. Joseph has participated in numerous festivals and exhibitions around the world, most recently "Les Révolutions de l'Amour" at L'Institut du Monde Arabe in Paris and his first solo exhibition titled "I Never Asked to Be So Sad and So Sexy" at TWXS in Brussels.
