The African superhero is back! In this edition, Kwezi hones his superhuman abilities and accepts that his powers are to be used to save his homeland from evil forces. To accurately reflect Kwezi’s world and that of potential Readers, the comic’s dialogue is peppered with street slang and pop culture references that place the story in a familiar context for young South Africans.
In a recent conversation with Design Indaba, Mkize shared his motivation behind the unique series. “We have never had a superhero that looks like us and speaks like us and shares the same experiences and environment as us.”
