Kuwaiti Comics

Marie writes in her blog "No Hurry in Kuwait" that the NY Times published an article on the company she is working for in Kuwait. It explains that the comics she is working on will feature characters who exhibit traditional Muslim virtues such as wisdom and generosity.

Marie has also been writing about the challenges of translating American comics into something that Arabic youth will understand. One question that came up was "What is senior skip day?" She later mentions in the comments that equally challenging are explaining to non-Westerners what "going Carrie on them" means and what a "mutant" is.
