Author Biography

Author Karim K Devji had an unusual creative vision: to create a new genre of “American Superhero,” a character that broke boundaries, featuring a blond, blue-eyed, teenage Muslim superhero, who attends a multi-faith academy and fights evil.
The result: The Adventures of Jules Khan. In this novel, the fictional Khan attends a secretive, multi-faith ambassadorial academy, and fights against sinister weapons developers in order to protect humanity. Now, Karim (who prefers to be referred to by his first name) hopes to turn this award-winning novel and passion project into a comic series, full-length trilogy, video game, and even film series.

Reviewed by Kimberlee J Benart for Readers' Favorite

The Adventures of Jules Khan: A Teenage Muslim Superhero by Karim K Devji is an action-filled young adult fantasy with a strong spiritual thread which crosses all faiths. Set in the World War II era, it describes the coming-of-age of a superhero with fantastical powers while the theme of respecting people, regardless of religion, nationality, or culture, is emphasized throughout. Born in Europe of mixed religious and ethnic heritage, Jules is sent to a secret boarding school in Africa at the age of thirteen to learn martial arts along with spiritual and intellectual studies to prepare him to become the protector of a book that holds the secret to world peace. At eighteen, Jules heads to Harvard and is immediately pursued from one country to another by the warmongering National Weapons Association that wants the book.

In The Adventures of Jules Khan, Devji gives us a teenage superhero for our times; a spunky and faith-filled young man who is a proponent of world peace through understanding what unites us. Although Jules is a Muslim superhero, the story is engaging for teens of any faith and Devji is respectful of all traditions. Prayer and meditation are as much Jules’ weapons against evil as the impressive superpowers he possesses. There are a series of violent encounters in the story, but Jules is always a defendant, not an initiator of it. The narrative is descriptive and moves along at a good pace. The story is told in Jules’ own words and laced with his charming sense of humor. My favorite scene is when he initially gains his powers. It’s pure fantasy and utterly beautiful in construction. An entertaining and thought-provoking read. I hope we see more of Jules and more from Devji.


Amazing Book buy it.


This is a fantastic project,
We are hoping with the book, the comic, the adult version and the movie script we can eventually say....yes this is a book and project that in a small yet effective way makes Muslim teenagers acceptable and cool in this new world....
It also sheds light on all the beautiful religions working together and accepting each other to ensure peace and harmony for all regardless of race and beliefs.
At the end of the day the book reminds teenagers that art, entertainment ( albeit a bubble gum read) can help direct all of us to the divine
Have a beautiful Sunday

Thank you so much for this prestigious finalist award!

For a first time author and dreamer...for anyone thinking of writing and creating fiction in the young adult religious category...if you place your faith in yourself, dream and work hard then the Divine will reward you.

This is such an honour and I am so humbled but more important then awards or recognition is what all of us as a collective humanity can do for this beautiful blue pearl planet we all call home..

Take care of each other and all that exist on earth and hopefully the Divine shall take care of us..
Have a blessed day everyone
