It’s Iimi! The Road to Now

Since she first invited Iimi to the Mosque in the hope of making a convert, Kismetta, unwittingly at first, found herself on the road aimed at seeking Christ. Now the road is at its end… and at its beginning.

Readers who need to be reminded of the context for a specific panel, the Issue numbers there correspond with the information on THIS page.

Interestingly enough, Kismetta’s debut on Facebook was April 12, 2020. So, while it was unplanned, it was almost exactly three years from the time she tried to convert Iimi to her Baptism. 

Post-Comic Notes:

From this day forward in the comics, Kismetta is a Catholic. So this might be a good moment to say a prayer for the real-life converts who entered the Church this Easter Vigil. 


The title is multi-layered. In one way, it is a comic showing the influential moments in Kismetta’s journey from Islam to Catholicism. But it was also inspired by 2 Corinthians 6:2… “now is a very acceptable time; behold, now is the day of salvation.” So if you looked at the inscription behind Iimi on the cover, you might not have been surprised…


Each panel on pages 1-15 came directly from the original comic. I decided against modernizing the graphics of the panels. So, you can see how the comic evolved from 2020 to now. So, You get to see the crude artwork, the clunky word balloons, the overly broad free fonts, the short skirts, and so on. My only changes were removing captions and footnotes to avoid cluttering the panels where I inserted issue information on each panel.
