Publisher Review

"I had no idea, when we all picked this book for CfC, that, as good as it looked then, it would turn out this BEAUTIFUL. Amazing work!" -Charlie Adlard, The Walking Dead "Shobo and Shof give us an original, beautifully crafted sci-fi with New Masters. It's an incredible debut from a distinctly African perspective. Shof's rhythmic storytelling, palettes, and world building visuals perfectly seam with Shobo's intriguing cast of heroes, cut throats, and politicians like only brothers can. Immerse yourself in this new world, you won't regret it!" -Nick Dragotta, East of West "It's immediately obvious the two [Shobo and Shof Coker] are passionate about the world they are building. They are incorporating different aspects of their culture: shared mythology, religion, history... The variety of African influences is evident and aesthetically the book is a fantastic dictionary of Afrofuturist elements." -Black Nerd Problems "Blends exciting adventure, compelling drama, and rich Nigerian mythology to present a vibrant new take on Afrofuturism." -Graphic Policy
