Googling African Comics these days thankfully returns a series of articles highlighting one African comic or the other. But that’s several articles pointing you in many different places (or saying the same darn thing about the same darn comics). If you’re like me, that means bookmarking a tonne of pages for later when you can sift through and find your favourites.
What if you were an African warrior that could not die, who would you sell your services to? This is what Scion is about, in a nutshell. Scion: Immortal, is one of Comic Republic‘s newest titles alongside Beatz and Visionary.
After two issues, Scion appears to be quite consistent in its releases compared to other series published by the CR label. I really hope it stays like this because we need consistency in this budding African comics industry. Without further delay, allow me to dissect this piece of art, and give you a reason to either follow the series or let it sink into oblivion. Muhahahahaha!
This weekend promises to be tons of fun with the release of two comic titles via Comic Republic. The publisher is ready to drop the fourth issue of the dark and fearful Eru comic. What was that? You haven’t read or heard about Eru? You do yawa! We’d totally love to go into it for you but the folks over at Naija Komics Online do a wonderful job of it here. Okay, fine, we’ll bite.
2016 is technically our sophomore year in sharing content around African comics, animation and games although it does feel like freshman year. It was a testing the waters kind of phase that we’re thrilled to have experienced.
Picture Shango (the god of thunder and awesomeness) as the sore loser in a gaming duel against Obatala (the god of purity)! Now picture Obatala’s impassive face in stark contrast to Shango’s fuming visage coupled with childish outbursts (we all have that one friend who doesn’t take losses well). That delightful glee is what you’re served in Orisha Pikin, the newest title by Vortex Inc.
