THE EPICS OF ENKIDU: AVAILABLE NOW!

Balladeer's Blog

epics of enkidu sizeAHMED ALAMEEN, motion-comic creator and best-selling author of the novel PSYCHS, has just launched his independent graphic novel project THE EPICS OF ENKIDU! Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog are familiar with my obsession with ancient mythology, so it goes without saying that I love the premise of this tale, which combines super-heroics with mythology and autism awareness.

The man-beast Enkidu, the foe-turned-friend in The Epic of Gilgamesh, has survived to the present-day. He surfaces in a hospital, suffering from amnesia. Can an encounter with an enigmatic superhero revive his memories or will these two figures, who should be allies, instead be doomed to fight it out in a tragic misunderstanding of Earth-shaking proportions?

This project will help spread awareness about autism through an engaging story if full color.

It’s not often that I feature crowdfunding campaigns here, but this one is – in my opinion – deserving of a bit more publicity, especially as I have autism myself; it’s rare that autism spectrum disorder is treated respectfully, positively or by people who genuinely have close experience with the condition.

Essentially a sequel to the oldest known story in the world – The Epics of Gilgamesh (which was written approximately 1500 years before Homer’s The Iliad) – The Epics of Enkidu is a comic book featuring a superhero with a difference – he has autism.

Written by Ahmed Alameen – who was inspired to write the comic by his autistic nephew – the crowdfunding campaign launches on IndieGoGo on the 15th of May. You can sign up for the pre-launch here.
