Chapter 8 | Page 6

“Salaam alaykum” is a traditional Islamic greeting used a lot in Arabic countries (and outside of Arabic countries I’m sure), and apparently there are a lot of different ways to spell it. It translates to “Peace be upon you,” but don’t worry, Ibrahim’s life won’t be peaceful for much longer. Muhaha.

I have another Kickstarter Plug today! I think I’ve mentioned Monster Pulse before, which is a webcomic about kids whose body parts come to life to do battle! If you loved (or still love!) Pokemon and Digimon growing up, this comic is right up your alley. The first volume’s Kickstarter recently started as well, and you can get the first six chapters in one awesome book. Check it out! It’s an all-ages adventure and action comic with a lot of humor and heart. And I’m not intentionally making a pun on that “heart” comment.

Thanks for reading! See ya next week!

  1. Love boys happy faces and Ibrahim confused look ;).

    • Hehehe, Ibrahim will be confused a lot, no doubt. :D

  2. Who is she ?

    • You’ll see soon! Actually there’s no secret, it’s Ibrahim’s mom.

  3. Goodness, Ibrahim’s adorable in that second-to-last panel! I could just wrap him up and take him home with me! <3

    • Haha! Good luck! He’s kinda tall.

  4. For some reason, I think Vali and Nali (Loki’s kids) will get along really well with those two boys. XD

    • The four young kids working together? Ibrahim’s worst nightmare.

      • That may well be Loki´s worst nightmare, too.

        • I agree with you both. Even the trickets Loke will have a limit at some point. XD

    • I think you’d be right! Man they’d get into a lot of trouble.

    • The little one (Arezou?) is a little girl. An adorably spoiled little girl. =)

  5. I am loving Ibrahim more and more.

    • Yay! I’m glad people are enjoying him. :3

  6. The little one… SO ADORABLE… no longer able sentence.

    • Haha! She is a cutie pie. Funny voices are the key to her heart.

  7. i just love all the impossible hair in this comic

    • Hahaha, that’s a fun compliment. Coal still wins for Most Impossible.

  8. The voice are always what makes a story more fun. ;)

    Speaking of Kickstarters, I launched one yesterday! I’m hoping to finally get the third novel in my trilogy into the world after the publisher collapsed. So, self-publishing yay! Wish me luck! (It’s at if you want to check it out!)

    • Oh gosh, awesome! Good luck on your Kickstarter! I hope it goes well. :D

      • Thank you for both the kind wishes and for contributing! It’s going well so far. :)

  9. I finally got caught up! These pages are so beautiful and I’m so excited to see what happens! Great job!

    • Ah, thank you so much! I’m happy you enjoyed it! :D

  10. I think they got that greeting from the Jews.

  11. Regarding salams, yes! We use them even in Pakistan. In fact, I don’t think there is an Urdu word for “hello”. o3o
