THE GLOBAL KID: The World's First VR/AR Political Comic Book Paperback – 22 December 2021
Enhance your purchase
My name is Maha and I'm an NYU professor, World Economic Forum risk expert and author focused on global politics. I wrote wrote the seven-time award-winning bestseller Future World Order (2019 & 2020) and sequel A Global Spring (2022). But my childhood dream was to be a cartoonist! This is why I drew the crowdfunded political comic book, The Global Kid, in 2016, which stars the superhero character of 14 year old Sami. Sami lived in different countries with his family (much like I did – 7 countries by age 14) and observes political problems (much like I do in my day job). My political comic book won its seventh education award in 2021. All my profits went to education nonprofits during 2016-2019 and then to my brother's memorial fund for Syrian refugee youth via charity Peace and Sport during 2019-2021.
This new version of The Global Kid takes you into the world of global affairs – in the virtual and augmented realms! Through the female superhero character Tanya and her canine sidekick Lucky (inspired by my rescue dog!), it entertains and educates kids age 8-12+ about the world's biggest challenges and kids' role in tackling them. This is in partnership with London-based, award-winning edtech startup Musemio, with important contributions from Rome-based AR Market and artist Mara Angelilli. The VR/AR comic book already won its first accolade in 2021 – the US-based Moonbeam Children's Book Award (comic book category)! It was also a finalist in the 2021 Germany-based Digital Female Leader Awards. And the comic reached the Top 100 Amazon bestsellers list in its first week – I donated 50% of the first week's profits to the Covid Solidarity Response Fund for the WHO to support global vaccine equality.
As you read my comic, Reader, please think about this: What role will you play in making the world a better place now and in the future?
Yours – Maha
