An Autistic Superhero with Extraordinary Abilities
The Epics of Enkidu is a comic book featuring a superhero who happens to be Autistic, in what could be the sequel to the oldest story ever found in human history, The Epics of Gilgamesh. The story takes place in a modern setting, where Enkidu is brought back with a degree of amnesia as he can’t remember who he is.
Being autistic, Enkidu’s brain works so fast, that everything around him moves too slow, which makes him a socially oddity who interacts with the world differently. Despite this, his autism does allow him to highly analyse everything, and see re-occurring patterns of things; things that can happen before they happen. Handy when he’s in danger but hard when you’re trying to have a conversation with him.
The Creative Team
The Epics of Enkidu creative team consists of writer/colorist Ahmed Alameen, who has previously become a national best seller with his book Psychs, and was inspired by his nephew who is an awesome autistic kid. The pencil and inking is done but Artist Felix Torres, who had created a lot of comic arts in his home country, Chile.
By funding this comic, you are creating a great contribution to the autistic community and to the people surrounding them. You will also be going to revive the oldest story ever found in human history; The Epics of Gilgamesh, and make others become more interested in history and ancient stories that withstood the test of time.
