It's Iimi! The Taint of Samhain…

On the eve of All Saints Day, dark and false claims abound… parroted by those deceived by the Father of Lies. In this case, Iimi and her friends get dragged into the false claims of Halloween as Saul accuses Catholics of having…  The Taint of Samhain

Pre-Comic Notes:

Saul and Tasha's accusations against Catholics are real ones. I've encountered them frequently on the internet and social media. 

Post-Comic Notes:

It's important to remember there are two different conversations here. The first is the defense of the Church from anti-Catholic slanders. The second is talking to would-be witches about the danger their experimentation puts them in. Iimi is certainly not denying the danger in her conversation with Saul and Tasha. She is denying that his accusations against Catholics are true.

In case it's not obvious, the woman with the hood and gold headdress leading the coven is Coach Ally.

For those unfamiliar with Sailor Moon, the interplay between Della and her mother on page 8 is based on the famous catchphrase, "In the name of the Moon, I will punish you!" (Tsuki ni kawatte, Oshioki yo!").

It's Iimi! The Battle of All Mothers

 As Iimi copes with attending a different high school, her sister, Paula, and their friends race to find evidence to exonerate her. Meanwhile, the parents' group realizes that talking among themselves is insufficient, and now is the time to act. It will be… The Battle of All Mothers

(I decided to release this comic a day early. While the title and image have nothing to do with the events of 9/11/2001, I did worry that the scene of destruction on the cover and title might lead people to think it was insensitive to release it on the day of the memorial.)

Post-Comic Notes:

Some Artwork in this comic was AI-generated through NightCafe. I'm not planning to make a habit of this. But the semi-distorted (you should have seen the ones I deleted) appearance fits in with Iimi being in a new school that is alien to her.

 The title is derived from the first Kuwait war in 1991. Saddam Hussein promised the "mother of all battles" (ام المعاركumm al-ma'ārik) if the Allies attempted to invade.

 An embarrassing note: I discovered one outfit for characters in ComiPo had an inappropriate logo for a Christian-themed comic. I probably never noticed it before because I never used it on a significant supporting character. I blurred it out in this comic and changed the outfit for future appearances of the character.

 So, my apologies to anyone who may have noticed it previously. It was unintentional.

It's Iimi! Delinquent

 It only took twenty minutes in the first period. But as a result, Iimi would be branded… Delinquent

 Pre-Comic Notes:

The cover image size is large. It could take awhile to load.

There is a slur used in this comic. It is not used in a way to show approval for it.

 Jinn: As mentioned on page 18, a jinn is a supernatural creature in Islam. Muslims need to believe in them because they are mentioned in the Quran. But beliefs about what they can do vary. As I understand it, they are considered to have the free will to choose good or evil. Good ones can be saved, and evil ones damned. Evil ones are reputed to be able to possess people. Whether the devil (Iblis) is a demon or a jinn is debated.

 Kismetta does not believe in Jinn any longer, but Yaminah does. So, that is why Kismetta mentioned them: To deny she was possessed.
