Check out ‘Kwezi’, the new comic book series which is getting rave reviews over in South Africa and and now world wide. Created by acclaimed artist Loyiso Mkize, the series is centered on 19 year old Kwezi, a typical South African youngster – immersed in popular youth culture – who develops a connection with his traditional roots,. Mkize says, “It is the journey of a young man. He starts off as an arrogant, opinionated anti-hero who discovers and appreciates his superpowers … the cultural aspect brings him back to his roots.” Explore some of the ‘Kwezi’ art, below.

Also if you’re a comic lover, don’t miss out on Afropunk’s latest giveaway; a ‘Legend of the Mantamaji’ comic book.
