Peter Antony Holder interview's Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa
Thank you for being a guest on Holder Tonight. It was a pleasure to have you on the program to talk about the comic book series you have created, THE 99.

It is commendable that you should attempt to create a group of superheroes that would have an Islamic background. Not only does it give young Muslims a sense of pride in heroes they can read about, but it also gives a diversity lesson to those of us who are not Muslim in thinking about those who are in a different light to which we are accustomed. . . .

THE 99 Review in JAZMAONLINE.COM
by Paul Dale Roberts,
Jazma President
Comments: Meet Mumita the Destroyer; Jabbar the Powerful; Soora the Organizer; Bari the Healer; Jami the Assembler; Noora the Light; Darr the Afflicter; Sami the Hearer. These superheroes are THE 99 - superheroes powered by Islam! Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa and Fabian Nicieza are the co-writers to THE 99. This is a fantastic group of superheroes who demonstrate their strength and courage in the face of incredible odds! Dr. Naif Al-Mutawa is the creator of THE 99 and I do believe he has a hit! You get character histories on each and every character, which places you closer to the character as you follow their adventures.

Why can't a comic be Islamic?

Why can't a comic be Islamic?
Tufts Magazine
by David Brittan
Naif Al-Mutawa, A94, used to worry that young Muslims didn’t have enough positive role models. Then, a few years ago, he learned about a set of children’s stickers glorifying suicide bombers. That did it. He put his clinical psychology practice on hold, raised $7 million in capital, and set about creating heroes the Muslim world could be proud of. THE 99, a comic-book series to be launched in September, stars teenage superheroes who are each endowed with one of the 99 virtues of Allah.
