An issue of my webcomic guest starring a certain Muslim prophet, goes online in some 24 hours. Am I nervous? Fuck yeah.
True, our readership is currently small and I don't expect anyone will even notice, but I am tense nevertheless. I'm glad we stuck to our guns and didn't fall into the trap of fear-induced self-censorship that so many others do. Still, if anyone ever says that Islam is a religion of peace, call bullshit on them. I never lost a minute of sleep over an issue featuring curried Kali and Ganesha over a year ago, why should Islam's prophet be any different? I don't think I really have to worry for my life for these pictures because of the comic way it was presented, but the fact that there is some uncertainty in that statement says a lot. Islam is scary.
