Don't Miss the Lady in Black: The Burka Avenger!

Are you reading for a flying, pen-throwing, book pounding female defender of education in Pakistan?

It seems the world must be because a new series to be broadcast in Pakistan in Urdu is taking to the air waves next month, accompanied by iPhone ap and video game.

It was created by Aaron Haroon Rashid, a Pakistani pop star, "as a way to create a positive role model for girls and a champion of girls’ education." “Each one of our episodes is centered around a moral, which sends out a strong social message to kids,” Rashid told the Associated Press. “But it is cloaked in pure entertainment, laughter, action and adventure.”"

The song's pretty catchy too.
