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.”

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! Opening Skirmishes

When students begin targeting Iimi for her beliefs, she finds that as nothing new, though her friends are less convinced. But now the attacks seem to be coming rapid fire with a teacher seeming to encourage them. Are they trying to push her to a breakdown?

Post Comic Notes: When designing the scenes for Della and Myrna, I wanted to provide an example of how to live in accord with the Catholic teaching on loving the person with a same-sex attraction.

As always, Iimi tries to show how we must act, even if those who hate us refuse to do likewise.

I also wanted to show how difficult it can be for a person with Aspergers to deal with a constant barrage of attacks.

It’s Iimi! Christ Shield Me Today

With the fear over what might happen to the family, and the fear that she might be targeted by those who think she’s a bigot, Iimi has a lot on her mind. But when we are targeted, or fear the unknown, we need to put our trust in God, come whatever may.

The text on the title page is from the Lorica of St. Patrick.

Post-Comic Thoughts: This comic marks the use of Clip Studio Paint (CSP) for the word balloons. It’s still a work in progress (I forgot to put the tails on a couple of balloons, and I need more practice in making connecting balloons look graceful). But I do think the result is less clumsy. It’s also an experiment with making characters in CSP interact with characters in Comipo.
