I hope the comics are just as good, or maybe even better.

Their thoughtfulness and dedication,to say nothing of the craft reflected in the final version is inspiring.

I saw the original version at a screening in New York two years ago after which the director and his subject discussed the making and intent of the film and the project. Their thoughtfulness and dedication,to say nothing of the craft reflected in the final version is inspiring.Besides simply being engrossing,the film leaves you with at a new level of understanding.

If you want a fun - but serious - and nuanced glimpse into Islam - this is a good place to start. I also think that the approach of using comics to reach kids is a really good idea.

I almost passed on watching this film due to the title! I would have missed out on a great story. This is a very well-crafted documentary that never lags from start to finish. The characters are interesting as are the locations. Take an hour of your time and watch it.
