Florida mother upset about books kids received on Halloween

Florida mother upset about books kids received on Halloween

Cape Coral, Florida (KTNV) -- A Florida mother is speaking out after finding some comic books in her kids Halloween candy, that she says are racist and offensive.

Each cartoon focuses on a different topic or religion.

"The Sky Lighter" is about an Islamic boy who blows himself up in a crowd of people.

"The Visitors" is about a pair of Mormons who visit a home and deliver some controversial comments.

And while the books are religious in nature, the mother says their message is not sitting well with her, "If you have something to say and you believe something, that's fine. But don't give it to children."

The comics are from a company called "Chick Publications." They say the comics are taken from scripture in the King James Bible and they are not meant to be offensive.
