Homegrown heroes: Egypt Today reports on AK Comics, the first original Arabic comic book series:

"I grew up on Western comic books. Batman and Wonder-woman were my favorites. But as I started to mature, I began to develop a sense of jealousy that the Americans, Japanese and Europeans all have their own superheroes, while Middle Easterners don’t. I hoped that one day someone would create heroes for us to call our own."
