Hi there, my name is Kumail. I'm a British Pakistani illustrator and artist. I make art that you can put up on your walls, and comics you can read on the internet.

Specifically, one comic – Kahlil. It’s the story of what happens when Superman doesn’t land in Kansas – he lands in Pakistan.

What happens to the most powerful person in the world growing up Muslim, Pakistani and brown, in a time of sectarian violence, international terrorism, and drone warfare.

What does Superman represent then?

*****
I love making it and people seem to love reading it. Which is great!
But there are costs to doing this. Web hosting, art supplies and the man hours make it a second full time job. But I do it for free. And I’d love to keep releasing it for free. Which is why I’m starting a Patreon.

If you don’t know what Patreon is, it’s a crowdfunding platform that allows you to support the creators of work you love so they can create the work you want. Sort of like an ongoing Kickstarter.

I’m currently working on releasing a chapter of Kahlil every two months, though with enough support I could afford to work on Kahlil more, and get it to you much quicker. Your patronage would help pay for the costs of producing the comic as well as things like rent, bills, etc etc.

There’ll also be rewards for your support! Bonus art and material, early access to chapters, Q&As, process videos and commissioned art.


Kahlil is an idea I’ve had for a long time. Three chapters are out now and 10 more will be released over 2016/17 to complete this first story arc. I have plans for a lot more comics. Your patronage can help me do that.

My name is Kumail, this is Kahlil and thank you so much.
