Post digital's new project

Heres an idea an associate of mine sent to me. We're thinking of making an independant manga out of it.
Trouble is, I'm not sure if the idea will appeal to alot of people (even though I like it


He is first of all a white American, late 20's, an adventurer, no set occupation, spends his days travelling around as an antique hunting mercenary, no sidekick. Carries a fogwatch. Has a distinctive scar from his days in the first world war. He has friends in the world's leaading museums. Can speak more then one language. Educated at Harvard.

Do some sketches anyhow and send it to me. I'll send you some just to kick start something. For our first STORY IT will be called, "SALADIN'S SCIMITAR"

Legend has it that there was a sword Saladin once possessed, a holy man of Allah once gave it to Saldin in his wars against the crusdaers, he was invincible agains the westerners and reconquered most of Palestine. Towards the end of Saladin's life he treasured the sword and kept it in a room of it's own. When he died he passed the sword to his successor s but they were useless in using the sword and soon were overthrown by the Mamluks. Baibars the Mamluk ruler took the sword from Saladin's successors and used it in his wars, in 1291 he expelled the Crusaders from Palestine and went on to conquer a huge empire. It passed on to the Ottoman Turks, Timurids, Mughals, etc . One day it disappeared when Auragnzeb the Mughal knelt down and drank water form the River, his sword fell into the river and was swept away into the sea. One day in 1921 a poor peasant was fishing, in his nets he found a sword entangled, he took the sword which had been tarnished for 200yrs, he polished it and kept it hidden. A passing Shah had travelled past his village one day to inspect his kingdom and stopped for a rest. The peasnt presented the Shah with the sword, the Shah was pleased and rewarded the peasant for his gift. The shah kept it hidden in his secret one knows where it is except our hero. An Arab collector living in New York has sought our hero and comissioned him to find the sword. Unfortunately for our hero so are other collectors. Here is where the adventure starts ..... Saladin's Scimitar. Of course there is no power in the sword, rulers who have posseesed it depended on it's false charm to give them confidence in battle.
So what do you think?

I like the idea... kinda reminds me of a Indian Jones type deal....

Im not very up to date on Middle east folk lore but is the ideas of that story actualy based on lore..... or is it completly fiction...??

either way works but I think a story is always more interesting if there is some sort of hystorical backing to it ....... something the reader can identify with rather than completly left in the dark.....
not that many people know much about middle east folk lore either but just knowing that it may be a true story makes it that much more interesting....
well thems my two cents any how.....

all in all it sounds intriguing..... Im a lazy lazy person but I would probably read the manga if it was made..... Id like to hear more of this when/if you get further into the project..... ^_^
As you were, I am
As I am, you will be.

yes, my friend told me it was an indiana jones type deal.
I'm pretty sure it is based on middle east folklore, only here the idea is recycled to form the story.

Oh well, the first ten pages have been scripted and I'll start pencilling them tomorrow.

The sword turns up in the offices of a San Francisco detective named Sam Spade. He is investigating the shooting death of his partner. Seeking the sword are a femme fatale, a fat man and a smaller gay guy. (Mentioning the Crusades brought this to mind.)

BTW, did you know that the term Palestine is from the Latin for Philistine? It was imposed on the region by the Romans a bit over 1900 years ago. That is today's Historic Trivia Which Really Doesn't Have Anything to do With the Discussion. Watch for more opportunities to throw a conversation off course!

Next week: Next week: Saladin's Sword is found in a middle eastern restaurant where it is being used to mix falafel batter.

Sorry for going off course. It's late at night and I really am not thinking properly.
