Type 1 Superhero Saves the Day
“Omega Boy Versus Doctor Diabetes” is a comic book written by brothers Kamaal and Malcolm Washington. The brothers—ages 11 and 9, respectively—are the sons of Alonzo Washington, publisher, co-writer, co-creator and owner of Omega 7 comic books.
The two boys, who have grown up around comics, started the “Omega Boy Versus Doctor Diabetes” venture when Kamaal was diagnosed with type 1 in 2003. He and Malcolm, who live in Kansas City, Kansas, draw and write the comic book. They wanted to use their Omega Boy superhero to educate children about the disease.
