It’s Iimi! Bug-Out Bag!

Relations between Kismetta and her family are at their lowest point. As the mistrust and hurts grow, Kismetta overhears things that makes her fear her parents aren’t dealing honestly with her. It leaves her wondering if she needs to prepare a… Bug-Out Bag!


































Post-Comic notes:

 

I actually went to some (English language) real-estate sites in the UAE. The seven-room house Sumeja mentioned was a real listing in Sharjah City at the time I was doing the research ($2.5M). It also has a maid room. Prices for this kind of property there were substantially cheaper than in Dubai (which have been skyrocketing with Russian oligarchs moving their wealth out of the country). But, as previously established, their family is wealthy.

It’s Iimi! Bonds of Battle, Shackles of Mistrust

In times of conflict, some become closer, others pull away. When Krysta and Daryl find conflict in a trip to Hipso Hill, those affected individuals react based on their differing temperaments, beliefs, and past experiences. 





























Post Comic Notes:

This comic included an experiment with action scenes. I don’t know if there will ever be a repeat. Each page took over a day each to pose models and backgrounds before I added in the Comipo elements and special effects. Safe to say that It’s Iimi! won’t become a superhero comic anytime soon.

It’s Iimi! Slow Burn

As the girls get to the final days of school, they should be excited about their impending freedom. But instead they struggle with fear, mistrust, and sadness. It’s not so much of a sudden crisis. It’s more of a… Slow Burn.

It’s Iimi! Guess Who’s Coming to Easter?

When Della shows up in time for the Easter Triduum to introduce her boyfriend to the family, the rest of the Iscra family seem concerned. Is this because they harbor racist attitudes? Or are there other things to consider before passing judgment on the family?

Pre-Comic notes: If you’re curious the title of this comic—and the font in the title—is an send up of the 1967 movie, Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner. This comic is trying for showing what the Catholic understanding of racial interactions should look like: It’s the person, not their ethnic makeup that matters in how we view and treat others. 

True, all men are not alike from the point of view of varying physical power and the diversity of intellectual and moral resources. Nevertheless, with respect to the fundamental rights of the person, every type of discrimination, whether social or cultural, whether based on sex, race, color, social condition, language or religion, is to be overcome and eradicated as contrary to God’s intent.
