A Superhero With Autism “cover reveal this Friday”

COVER REVEAL EVENT… This Friday, 3rd of April!

CP-3a coloring rain fix

The comic features a superhero with autism, a trait that is in fact a strength for Haythem, the main protagonist. But his powers are not just his lightning speed mind, which makes the whole world move slowly around him, but also because of a deep secret related to Mesopotamian legends that gave him his immeasurable power.

The inking art is done by a talented artist named Felix Torres, from Chile, who was inspired when I explained to him that this story was inspired by my nephew, who is an awesome kid with autism. Story and coloring by me.

It will mean a lot to us if you can support us when our Indiegogo campaign starts. Keep a lookout for this bad boy.

Harvest Nights

It’s been a year since I released a new book. People might say it’s because I got married this year, but it’s actually because I was busy with my movie “Callous” which I released on Amazon Prime, my comic book “The Epics of….” (Oh wait I’m not suppose to reveal the real title of my comic until the last issue from Part 1), moving along, and I was busy with…. you know what I can’t even mention this one either…. so yes I’ve been busy, but now I have a chance to get back to book publishing. The beginning of our new decade will see the release of my new Horror Novella, “Harvest Nights”, a Lovecraftian horror inspired by Native American myths in Colonial Times. It will be one of those books with sketches at the end of each Chapter. To be honest it is not easy to draw a creepy sketch, but I am beginning to get the hang of it. This sketch isn’t over though so no judging.

2020 will be an insane year for us.

Our Horror Movie Is Out

Two years ago, me and a group of awesome people made a movie that only costed us 3000$. A year later it got accepted into film festivals and won best feature at the Falcon International Film festival, London. And just last week, The movie was released on Amazon Prime. Our movie is a product of international enthusiastic people from different cultural backgrounds including America, China, Russia, Somalia, India, Mauritius, and Iraq (yours truly), which can show that people can get together and unite through art, even if it was a scary kind of art like our movie Callous.

For now the movie is available on Both the U.S. and the U.K.’s Prime video. I’ll be working on making the movie available on more platforms.

Callous U.S. : Amazon.com

Callous U.K.: Amazon.co.uk

Here’s the movie trailer (Be careful, it has a scary part :))

The movie might be a micro (more like nano)- budget film, but it does have its strong moments that I wish to share with horror movie enthusiasts. So have a go at Callous, you might see something you’ll like.

They Don’t Want To Know

I look around and I see a rise of distracting objects, tasteless topics and videos of people bothering people on the rise. High views of a video of someone playing the flute with his nose, a game about breaking bricks with the same colors, placed on the palms of neatly dressed zombies who only come back to being humans when an ad appears and they need to wait 5 seconds to skip it, the same way they skip the news about displaced children, the same way they skip the skinny child with his ribs showing, swinging between life and death in his hunger delusion, the same way they change the channel when they see a women marching for their rights, they flip the channel to whatever prank show is on when they see a school shooting. They stay inside in the comfort of their air conditioning, away from the rising heat, denying the climate change that will destroy our earth…. no…. earth won’t be destroyed, Earth have been here for 4.6 billion years, it has survived much worse, this is about our survival. But no… they don’t want to know. If they deny it, it won’t happen. Sure our kids won’t suffer… kids starving in the news? Where? I don’t see it… if I do it must be in one place only, some African countries, it will be solved… what do you mean Yemen and Syria too, they also have starvation? Well… I’m sure it won’t spread further than that… just think about the moment you finish your work so you can enjoy your crazy cakes or whatever game you think is more important than our world… well… it’s not your word anymore, because you abandoned it and created your own world. I however love this world, I love everything about it, and fortunately for you, you are a part of this world, and I hope you can wake up, I hope somehow my Post will break through the colored bricks and, hopefully, when you wake up, you don’t skip me like an ad. I’m not selling what you already have, you have this world, and if you don’t start to listen and act, then the world will skip you, and shuts us all down.

So I married a Chinese girl

She is Chinese, I am Iraqi, and we came up with the perfect couple name. “The Chiraqi Couple”.

I remember the day we met. It was during my stay in China. I was in a cafe, writing notes for my next book, when suddenly, I heard her a girl sing, in Arabic. I know! A Chinese girl in a city where most of its people don’t even speak English. But there she was, singing a song in Arabic. I turned to see who it was. I saw her sitting near the window, the light gave her some halo that made her look so divine. She was working on her laptop while she is singing. But that’s not it… that song, that particular song, I used to listen to it everyday on the radio when my dad takes me to school. I was pushed back in time where things were simpler. While she sang, I was transformed to my dad’s Volkswagen, on my way to school where I played with the school band every morning the national anthem. And on my way, my dad would put classic songs on the radio.

I said hi, in Chinese, and she was as shocked as I when I heard her sing in Arabic; they don’t get that much foreigners who speak Chinese. I asked her if she speaks Arabic. She just knows a little, just from what she heard from the songs that she listens to. She told me that she loves middle eastern culture. That made me smile, because even though our culture is full of art and beautiful stories, and gave life to civilizations, many only know what the media shows, hatred, religious racism, death, terrorism. They do not show that we are hurt by that more than anyone in the world, but most importantly, they do not show the normal, kind people, let alone artistic ones. So you can see why Rita, my wife now, became an interesting person from the moment we met. And on our first date, at an Indian restaurant that I didn’t know about, but she did, we shook hands for the first time, and we electrocuted each other. We laughed about it, but we both took a mental note… “It’s a sign”. Then, one night, on a camping trip, under the stars and god’s eyes, I asked her to marry me.

Celebrations? Big wedding, dove flying? No… far from it… but that’s a story for another time. 🙂

Can you go crazy from too much ideas?

Can you go crazy from having so many ideas, or does it open your eyes?

This is the question that resonated in my head during my morning walk while I rolled the ball with my feet; a practice I use to increase my concentration, which was not as it used to be because even when I walk with a football rolling between my legs I notice the shadows on the ground in the periphery of my vision, and my hyper imaginative mind couldn’t help but imagine an assassin’s shadow about to jump on me, and how I might roll on the ground like the ball between my legs to avoid death. And after a while of me living in the imaginary world I conjured with my mind, where I was initiating a new member in my organization by testing him, I came back to my world by the sounds of Car horns in the distance. I looked around, realizing I was operating on autopilot while my imagination was sustaining the world I created. I looked at the trees, the bricks, and the people around me, and they all felt strange to me, as if the world around me was not the one I knew my whole life. Why am I seeing colors that I don’t recognize? Why, at that moment, do I hear birds like I never heard their melodies before? As the, now strange wind, brushed through my hair and stimulate my neurons, a revelation came to me. The way we see the world, as proven, is through illusion. There is no orange color, it’s our eyes that see it this way because that’s how our brain translate them, the same way the world is translated to a bat or to a spider. All creatures see the world differently, we don’t know what the world actually looks like. Maybe there is no world and we just imagining it and you and me are assuming that we imagine the same thing and hear the same color when we describe a shirt.

My isolation from life through my imaginary adventure made the world look different to me when I came back to it. I felt as if I came to a realization at that moment, and I hope that one day I can see the world as it is, in its true form, its true sounds and its true taste. I pray that I can receive the right brain that reveals the reality of my illusion.
