    The creator of a bestselling comic designed to show the world the tolerant and peaceful face of Islam has written an open letter to his young sons explaining how the project grew out of 9/11.

    In the letter, written for the BBC News website, Kuwaiti psychologist Dr Naif al Mutawa, says his superheroes - inspired by the Koran and known as THE 99 - were designed to "take back Islam" from militants who had taken it hostage.

    The comics, which now sell about one million copies a month in several languages, are soon to be made into an animated film by Dutch media company Endemol.

    Early last year, Forbes magazine announced THE 99 were one of the 20 top pop culture trends sweeping the world.


    The website for the comic is http://www.the99.org/

    Anyone who is interested can download a free pdf copy of the 'origins' issue at:

    http://www.the99.org/pge-36-33-Articles-17-20,ckl

    The artwork looks decent. I can't vouch for the story. It looks like your standard pseudo-scientific comic book falderal. But from a Muslim point of view.
