Fighting for peace -- and a market: The San Francisco Chronicle checks in on creator Ayman Kandeel, AK Comics and "the first homegrown comic book superheroes from the Middle East":

"The comics premiered in the United States, but the company had difficulty gaining notice in the crowded superhero market, so it changed tactics and introduced them in Egypt, where it now prints about 8,000 copies of each issue. It hopes to reintroduce them in the United States next year."
