About

Official main cover. Artist: Fredrik Mattsson

Introduction

I am Hisham Kaine, author of the comic book Wahid: Weapon of mass destruction. For three years have I worked on this project and today we are a team of eight individuals doing our best to give you a unique but familiar experience.

I was born in Sweden, but my parents are from Iraq. I see myself as one that has experience from both countries. It has given me lots of perspectives about culture, religion, politics and morality. I have been an avid fan of comics, games and movies for 30 years. It was my guide of right and wrong and has shaped me into being a person that wants to make a difference. Like "Uncle Ben" said: With great power, comes great responsibility. 

In later years I got tired of seeing middle eastern role models being either dead prophets or bloodthirsty dictators. I felt the need to create a character that questions himself, values and even "God". I defend freedom of speech. If we do not fight for it, there will be nothing left of freedom. I choose to live my life, speaking and thinking like a free man, not one who stays silent while dark forces vote and dictate people to die for greed or gods. It is time to take a stand! Will you join me?

The story of Wahid plays out in a parallel world aligned with our reality. What if Saddam Hussein had a weapon of mass destruction. What if, that weapon was a super-soldier, set loose in Iraq in the year 2015, what would happen next? That is what I am trying to tell with my story. We have made a music theme, website, social media, trailer and with your help, a "Mature" comic book series.

To create #1 of Wahid, we need your help to finance this project so that I can pay my artist Fredrik Mattsson, print, travel expenses, promotion, marketing costs and distribution. For helping us, you will get the first print issue 1 containing 50 pages, full-colour and a story, unlike anything you've ever seen before.

BUDGET:

Risks and challenges

The challenges we face are all economic issues. Depending on how successful we do on Kickstarter will determine the time it will take to release this comic. I am in touch with a printing company, ready to go. We have bought 1000 shipping packages, protective cover and address stickers. I counted to deliver 1000 exemplars from the printer. The budget to make this product will cost around 10 000 dollars, which I am ready to pay half for. The budget counts for print, travel expenses, promotion, marketing costs and distribution. Getting exposure is the difficult part. I plan to advertise on Facebook/Instagram because of the good results one gets. A challenge is to finish all pages in time. We have the script finished, Main and Variant Cover, 10 pages out of 50, storyboard and layout for the whole issue. We are today eight individuals who work and believe in this project. If you help us finish this project, then you will ensure us to continue an ongoing series of Wahid! Issue 2 will be named Wahid: Dawn of Evil.
