The Dark Pig Returns

"An artistic and storytelling triumph." -that guy from Bleeding, about my 3rd Pigman comic book, The Infidel #3

The rest of his review was superfluous :) The title of his review was "The Dark Pigman Returns -The Most Right Wing Comic Book On The Planet?", which if you don't know, was alluding to Frank Miller's seminal Batman comic book series, The Dark Knight Returns, which I pay an homage to on the left. The reviewer wished there was “more nuance” and “less Randian individualism” in my work, not realizing that he’s describing most comics today, and why mine is different. Then the reviewer desperately attempts to counter the fact that Pigman is the only anti-jihad comic book out there by citing Charlie Hebdo, as if they publish anti-Jihad, anti-Islam comic book stories and not simply single Mohammad cartoons, which they don't even do anymore. And finally, an interesting, or revealing, feature of his review was that he did not mention me by name, which happens more and more these days, making me...

The Infidel, featuring Pigman, is Available on Kindle & ComiXology

For those who haven't yet gotten my series The Infidel, featuring Pigman: It's a story within a story, with the Pigman part of it being the comic book within the graphic novel. Here's a synopsis of The Infidel:

THE INFIDEL is about twin brothers Killian Duke and Salaam Duka whose Muslim background comes to the forefront of their lives on 9/11. It's Recovered Muslim vs Born Again Muslim. Killian responds to the atrocity by creating an ex-Muslim counter-jihad superhero comic book called PIGMAN, as Salaam fully surrenders to Islam. Pigman's battle against his archenemy SuperJihad is echoed by the escalating conflict between the twins.

I'm pleased that three installments of The Infidel are now available for you to read in your choice of two digital platforms. You can get them on ComiXology here and on Amazon Kindle here. I released the third chapter last week and it's doing well on ComiXology, where it's currently the Top Selling independent creator comic book, as well as residing on page ten of the forty-two pages of All Top Selling comics. The reader response has been as great as I hoped it would be. So if you haven't yet gotten my series, get issue one and go from there. I think you'll be hooked. And do let me know what you think either here on my blog, or in the star rating at ComiXology, but most especially a written review on Amazon, which will bring more attention to it. Thanks for your support. 

P.S. When I say that there's nothing like my Pigman comic book out there, I'm not exaggerating. When I click the "Similar books to The infidel, featuring Pigman" option on Amazon, the only thing that comes up is my Pigman series.

Dear Print Snobs (I Used to Be One)

A fan of my work writes me, after going to the ComiXology link for my Pigman digital comics: "I would like to to buy a hard copy; an actual comic book, of Pig Man. The link has the option of buying a digital copy. Tnx"
I wrote back that "it's all about the content, and while I would like to offer both digital and print, I can't afford to do so."
Fan follows up "I understand, print is very expensive. Thank you for your response and THANK YOU for fighting the good fight! Never submit."
Not long after, he writes back: "love the digital Pig Man. Better than a real comic. Beautiful!" 
I respond "I think the back light (on iPad/eBook reader) really shows the pages in a way that print cannot, especially for color comic books."
I used to be a print snob, dismissing digital comic books and books, but when I do get comic books these days, it's digital, as well as books. Now, I definitely get my special edition hardcover, oversized art books, which digital can't really do justice, but regular print comic books can't match the way the pages come to life on my iPad, where everything pops off the page in a way print can't achieve. So for those who dismiss digital comic books, reconsider it. The best way to try it is to go onto ComiXology, set up an account, without charge, and download one of their free comics, just to get a first hand test of how reading a comic book on an eBook reader, or computer or smart phone looks like. If that's what's stopping you from reading my comic book, I ask that you simply give a free digital comic a try. Here are all of the Free Comics at ComiXiology where you can see for yourself how great a reading experience it is, but it is Ideal on an eBook reader, as when I first uploaded my comic books onto my iPad, I was blown away and it knocked the print snob right out of me. Try it. Thanks.

Pigman, the Jihadists' Worst Nightmare, Returns

American superheroes have gone from kicking evil's ass to kissing evil's ass. Not only won't Marvel & DC Comics allow their superheroes to take on Jihadists, but they promote the "Islam means peace" myth through their "Muslim superheroes", as if jihad doesn't exist. 

And then there's Pigman, my anti-jihad superhero, who, like me, is a recovered Muslim who studied Islam as if his life depended on it, but who, unlike me, takes the war into his own hands when he sees our culture's inability to respond to Jihad in kind. Here's my synopsis for my series, The Infidel, featuring Pigman:

THE INFIDEL is about twin brothers Killian Duke and Salaam Duka whose Muslim background comes to the forefront of their lives on 9/11. It's Recovered Muslim vs Born Again Muslim. Killian responds to the atrocity by creating an ex-Muslim counter-jihad superhero comic book called PIGMAN, as Salaam fully surrenders to Islam. Pigman's battle against his archenemy SuperJihad is echoed by the escalating conflict between the twins.

So if you want to see the enemy treated in a 
way Far different than it's being treated in the real world or in any of our entertainment media, get my Pigman comic book series. I just released my third Pigman comic book, The Infidel #3. It's a Pig-sized 55 pages, and the few readers who have responded to it so far agree with me that it's the best issue yet. You be the judge, get your digital copies of my Pigman comic book instantly at ComiXology, the world's premiere digital comic book reading app (whom I can't thank enough for carrying my comic book, as every publisher I made contact with rejected it).

If The Jihadists in Garland Had Their Way...

...Pigman would have ended his battle against Jihad because I wouldn't have been around to finish The Infidel #3. This issue is a particularly special one for me, because it comes after the whirlwind of my winning the Mohammad cartoon contest and the jihadist attack that followed, along with the scumedia's attack on those of us involved in the contest. Things are different for me today than they were before Garland, in a number of ways, yet I have no intention of stopping what I'm doing, despite the continued threats. As I wrote earlier today: Death threats won't stop me. Only death will. And let me say this to those who are foregoing getting my individual digital issues of The Infidel at ComiXology, and who are instead waiting for my hardcover pigskin-leather bound collection of The Infidel, the one that I often invoke: it's a dream of mine, to put all six or seven issues together in that way, but I don't know if it'll happen. I hope it does, if everything works out well, but I wouldn't wait if I were you, because even if it happens, it'll take years. Keep in mind that, unlike most comic books, which are done by a number of people, I'm a one man show. I write, draw, letter, color and self-publish it all. In other words, if you want to support the Only comic book taking on Jihad in the world today- as well as taking on Islam in an explicit way- then I really need your support now. You may have a preference for print, but I simply can't afford to release a print alternative or else I would have. If you want to see the enemy get it in the way they never have, in the way they deserve to, then get The Infidel #3 on Wednesday. It's the biggest and best issue of The Infidel yet, and I hope to make some noise on its release with your help. Thank you.

Speaking of Clocks and Islam...

Here is my depiction of the Clock Tower atop the Abraj Al-Bait Towers in Saudi Arabia, on page one of The Infidel #3. And it wouldn't be Islamic without the swords on the clock face, just as the official Saudi Arabian flag has a sword on it. How peaceful. The terms Killing Time and Time to Kill come to mind.

Oh, and if you haven't heard, Pigman returns in The Infidel #3 this Wed, Sept 23 on ComiXology. You can catch up with the series here by getting your digital copies.

Get The Infidel #3 to see the Enemy Get it

Before you get The Infidel #3, get #1 & #2 here.
The Infidel series is not just for those who read comic books, but for everyone who wants to see the enemy get it.

This Wednesday, September 23

"SuperJihad ... he will make you submit." -Osama bin Laden's last words, to Pigman

The first time Pigman hears about his archenemy, SuperJihad, it's from Osama bin Laden in The Infidel #1. Then SuperJihad introduces himself to the world in The Infidel #2 by destroying an American icon, leading Pigman to destroy an Islamic icon. And in The Infidel #3, coming out Wednesday, it's Pigman vs SuperJihad, available on ComiXology.


It's been building since issue #1, and now it's Pigman versus his archenemy SuperJihad in The Infidel #3, coming out this coming Wednesday, September 23, on ComiXology. Catch up with The Infidel series here.

When Obama Invited Me To The White House...

I never responded.

I Will Come Out of "Hiding" on September 23

After I refused to answer personal questions about my whereabouts and other details about myself right after the Garland attack and ensuing death threats, the Wall Street Journal decided to write a headline story that I went into "hiding". I never did, as I've been on TV since Garland, I've drawn 4 new Mohammad cartoons, and most notably, I will be releasing the third issue of my Pigman series in 5 days.
