For my final Open Works project I would like to focus on something along the lines of a comic. I want to represent time through a comic strip of some sort. I want to create a short story describing my move from Cairo to New York. I want there to be a situation where there can be humor in nervousness or panic. I want it to be light hearted and I believe that I can portray that through the dialogue and drawings used. Furthermore, I want to possibly create a fantasy world of a superhero that fights crime in a completely different culture moving to NYC to a completely different side of crime. I enjoy the world of comics and a world outside of reality so I wanted to incorporate this in my time project.
The main story line will consist of me as a superhero that fights crimes in Egypt. Though the characters are not real, I would like the crimes to be related to actual problems in Egypt, like political unrest, sexual harassment and other crimes that are a bit lighter hearted. I will make an excuse for my character to travel to New York, and I will have her fight crimes along the same lines of the ones in that she fights in Egypt, except they will be different in a humorous way. It also is inspired by the children’s book I made earlier in the semester “Ragab the Rat” however this would be aimed more towards an older audience.
