‘Wham! Bam! Islam!’ by Isaac Solotaroff

A live action documentary which follows the creation of Muslim comic book heroes and uses animated sequences to bring the characters to life.

“WHAM! BAM! ISLAM! tells the story of Naif Al-Mutawa and his venture to create the first team of superheroes from the Muslim world called THE 99. Following the tumultuous journey of THE 99 from concept to reality, from acclaim to censure, from the edge of bankruptcy to a multi-million dollar animation series, Al-Mutawa dodges cultural minefields and confronts the harsh realities of the global marketplace in pursuit of his vision to bring new heroes to children around the world.”
