Tarek Shahin (born 1982) is an Egyptian cartoonist. He is best known as the author and illustrator of the comic strip 'Al Khan', which first appeared on the pages of The Daily News Egypt newspaper in 2008 and continues to run independently on the series' website.[1]

Shahin's satirical work in the 2000s - a time of relative political suppression in Egypt - has been associated with the young liberal movement which would ultimately lead to political regime change in the country in 2011.[2][3][4][5][6][7]

In 2017, 'Redemption: An Al Khan Series,' a three-part story, was launched, set in the aftermath of the Six-Day War in 1967.[8]

Shahin is also a banker in the City of London, according to the bio section of "As You Were," his fourth 'Al Khan' book.[9]
