“The Epics of Enkidu” Is a comic book that features a superhero with Autism, and for History/literature fans, it is the sequel to the oldest story found in human history. The Indiegogo Campaign will start on May 15th. Set the date if you want to bring the oldest tale ever told back on track in a modern setting.
I have been teasing by posting my comic art without posting a title. Well we won’t have to wait much longer. Today is the day. I have been working on the idea for two years, ever since I told my wife, my fiance back then then, about it and saw how excited she became when she experienced the story of the first volume. (Yes, that’s how we writers get things done). That day I became sure I was up to something good. I continued my story research and searched for a talented artist who can help me with half the work, and I found him. We kept the title and story a secret… but today will be the day.
We will soon unveil the mystery surrounding my project and will finally get to show what is the direction the story will take, but revealing the title, and what it means exactly. If you are curious, and I hope you all are, you can follow and see what will happen later today, when we reveal the Cover of the first issue, and on that cover, you will see the title, written in both English and Sumerian.
I would like to invite you to my new superhero comic. First of all, I know what you are thinking, “Superhero?… like we don’t have enough of that already.” Well this one is different and unique to me. He is inspired by my nephew, who happens to be autistic, who I also believe is a very smart and very physically fit kid. He led me to the path of writing a story about a hero with autism.
So if you want to see something unique in a genre that have been repetitive lately, then you are only clicks away from experiencing a new story, which is entitled, Djinni
Djinni 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 Mesopotamia that gave him his immeasurable strength.
