Wham! Bam! Islam! (2011)
Presented by Salah D. Hassan, MSU Muslim Studies Program/Department of English
Co-sponsored by MSU Muslim Studies Program, MSU Comics Forum, and Michigan Humanities Council
Part of Muslim Journeys Bookshelf
Wham! Bam! Islam! tells the story of Naif Al-Mutawa and his venture to create the first team of superheroes from the Muslim world called THE 99. Following the tumultuous journey of THE 99 from concept to reality, from acclaim to censure, from the edge of bankruptcy to a multi-million dollar animation series, Al-Mutawa dodges cultural minefields and confronts the harsh realities of the global marketplace in pursuit of his vision to bring new heroes to children around the world.
