KBS comics universe is a shared reality for various characters ranging from everyday people to the less mundane, a supernatural and a magical universe to unknown entities in realities many tale bearers forgot. Sound exciting yet?
Needles to also point out the educational experience it portends. This is the home of characters like The JujuMan, Herdsman, Sharadum, SkyRanger, Ijele, TheMenders, theKritans, YelowDeath, Dim Man and many more unfolding.
Many will ask where have all these characters sprung from. A few readers may yet identify with some of these characters how ever it is imperative to introduce some of them as we will be seeing in the immediate future.
Starting of, we will usher you into the universe, which has a foothold on an African principal setting; by our very first publication which is a graphic novel JUJUMAN:THENOIR CHRONICLES.
This book, for the sake of production logistics will be released in chapters. Each chapter may or may not come with a preview edition, however an extended preview edition will be usher in chapter one.
This will enable readers to get an insight of what the story is about and also to introduce some important key elements as the twist and turns of the tale permits.
You will be introduced to the Jujuman, the Dibia League, the Head Hunter, the gods and the important people that have roles to play in this novel and the universe at large. In this universe, the reality is very much like the reality we know except there are fictional aspects in order not to impingeon any copyright laws.
In the course of the saga, don’t be surprised to have some earlier listed characters pop in and out. You are assured most of these characters have been around for a longtime when this universe was in the underground
publishing. The comic scene in Nigeria suddenly woke up and be assured it woke these characters. They have long been KBS characters trademarks and its not even surprising that of all the talented creativity ongoing, none has reckoned to create any character nearly as unique as ones you will get to meet in the KBSverse.
Africa is the theme and purposefuly so because most mainstream comic media usualy glorify the west leaving Africa much more bare with nothing more than a distorted view. Remedy? KBS creators and founders are African based and deeply rooted in the traditions while also well versed in many other cultures.
Expect a thrilling experience and remember the day you read this here for this is ……in the beginning.
