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! 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.

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.
