First Muslim Superhero Kismet, Man of Fate, Returns, Immediately Punches Nazi

Posted by September 1, 2018 Comment

First appearing in Bomber Comics #1 in 1943, Kismet, Man of Fate, is known as the first Muslim superhero. Now, straight from the Golden Age of Comics, Kismet is returning in a new 160-page graphic novel by A David Lewis and Noel Tuazon, from A Wave Blue World, just in time, a press release declares, “to confront a new age of Fascism.”

Kismet’s first appearance in Bomber Comics #1

More details from the press release:

Kismet, Man of Fate is a 160 page, full color graphic novel featuring the triumphant return of the world’s first Muslim superhero (originally appearing in 1943’s Bomber Comics #1). Last seen punching Nazis on the front line during WW II, Kismet has returned to the modern era to lead the charge against an all-too-familiar threat!

And for those who find fear to be an effective coping mechanism, we invite you to stare into the abyss with the new horror anthology, This Nightmare Kills Fascists. Reflecting on the state of current U.S. politics, this collection features stories from some of indie comic’s hottest talent including Vita Ayala, Justin Jordan, Tini Howard, Christopher Sebela and many more.

Says AWBW publisher Tyler Chin-Tanner:

Comics have always had a strong link to politics and world events, going back to their roots during World War II. And if you take a look at what’s going on in the world around us today, this is no time to ignore the lessons history has taught us.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
