Islamic Comics

Good article by Megan Wong in the Christian Science Monitor about a new Islamic superhero comic book.

"The series is inspired by Islamic culture and history – the title refers to the 99 names and traits attributed to God in the Koran – and aims to spread a universal message of teamwork along with plenty of action, adventure, and 'kapow!'"

But since when did a comic book superhero need "$6.8 million from 54 investors in eight countries" in start up money?

Newsrama has a preview here.

Hat tip to Journalista!
