It’s Iimi! Making Plans

With a week to go before she leaves for the United Arab Emirates, Kismetta awakens early one morning with a premonition. Somewhat dubious about her parents’ intentions, Kismetta discusses what to do in a case of powerlessness. Especially when it seems many people are Making Plans.


Pre-Comic Notes:

People who think the teachers’ plotting in the following story is far-fetched should realize that the proposals are based on actual events in the news over the past few years.

Post-Comic Notes:

References to the French Revolution and 1984 were deliberately chosen based on how some educational ideologies are aimed at conditioning students and undermining family values that disagree with them. Personally, I wonder if the proponents are even aware of these parallels. However, I don’t doubt that those involved think they are the “heroes” and can’t imagine anyone thinking differently without being “bigoted.”

It’s Iimi! An Omen From the East!

Sumeja has come with baby Fatima to visit Kismetta, for which Kismetta is elated. But when Sumeja arrives, she comes with news that shakes Kismetta and the Iscra family. How will Kismetta face… An Omen From the East


Pre-Comic Notes:

“Omen” was chosen as a sense of “ominous.”

Blogger destroyed the original post, and I needed to recreate it. So, this is why the link identifies this as a June post, even though it is listed as May 8.






Post Comic Notes

The Arabic script on the plane means “Lorem Ipsum.” (On Emirates Airlines—which “Emirati Air” is a satire of, I’m told the Arabic on their planes simply means “Emirates.”)


I hope it goes without saying that Bahrudin and Zara’s past behavior is adultery, plain and simple. It’s unacceptable for Muslims just as it’s unacceptable for Christians.

It’s Iimi! A Spirit of Slavery

Because of the potential side effects of the medicines Iimi takes, she needs to see a psychiatrist before increasing the dosage. But both Thea and the psychiatrist realize they must get to the root causes. Meanwhile, Iimi is suspicious of psychiatry being “anti-religion.” Ultimately, she has to ask: is her condition something that comes from freely serving God? Or has she instead fallen into… A Spirit of Slavery?
