New Stuff and Inspiration
We can be heroes.
The 99 is a comic book series that exposes kids to the tolerant side of Muslim values. It’s been out for a couple years now, and growing like crazy. It’s Facebook page has 1,525,265 likes. I’ve been reading the graphic novel Bone at home with my son for a few weeks now. We’re about midway through the 9 volume series. It’s epic, in his words. There’s something cool about the effortless way you absorb comics. So much goes on in your imagination between frames. It’s a medium where the reader and author kind of make an agreement up front that this is going to require a lot of imagination on the reader’s part. You have to fill in big gaps. Maybe that’s why it’s such a perfect medium for mythology. Something to keep in mind when we’re trying give people a new way to look at the world they live in.
