World’s First Muslim Superhero returns to the direct market to confront a new age of Fascism

[Press Release]

(September 12, 2018) A Wave Blue World announces its return to the direct market this November, striking a new deal with Diamond Distribution which will see the release of two titles perfect for this coming election season!


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 1944’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.

Comics have always had a strong link to politics and world events, going back to their roots during World War II.” says AWBW publisher, Tyler Chin-Tanner. “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.”
