    I have just written five scripts in five months, featuring a new super-hero, ‘Sobek’/crocodile man, who is a combination of an Egyptian boy/man and a Nile Crocodile, descended from Sobek of ancient Egypt, and Sarco from Egypt 100 million years ago (the largest croc ever, and the largest predator ever). ‘Sameh/Sam’ and the crocodile are connected by telepathy and avatar technology. The scripts are available for download at Amazon Studios and Scriptrevolution.
