The article I chose for this subject is from the December 2008 issue of Animation Magazine called "Endemol Animating Arab Comic The 99" It was written by Ryan Ball.

A UK based company named Endemol, is producing an animated series based on the Arab comic book, "The 99" The story's theme is heavily based in the Koran and it's about super heroes that derive their powers from the 99 attributes of Allah. Created by Teshkeel Media Group CEO Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa, The 99 has been insanely popular among Muslim readers. There are however some who don't like the idea of blending Islamic culture with Super-Hero lore. I find it very interesting that in a era of Radical Islamic terrorist attacks and what not, that they are going to market an animated series based on their religious beliefs. Maybe it's a good thing. I don't have anything against Islam as long as they are teaching peace and unity. which from what I've seen, is'nt a huge part of their religion.
