Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood

Persepolis 2.0

With Satrapi’s permission, an updated version has been created, combining her illustrations with new text about Iran’s 2009 presidential election. This work, called Persepolis 2.0 was published online. It originally published at a website called "Spread Persepolis" and an archived version is available at The authors of the comic are two Iranian-born artists who live in Shanghai and who give their names only as Payman and Sina.[10]

This revised edition is only ten pages long, and recounts the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on June 12.

The authors have used the original drawings by Satrapi, changing the text, and inserting one new drawing, letting Marjane tell her parents to stop reading the newspaper but instead turn their attention to the internet and Twitter during the protests.
