The African comic book Kugali hoping to take on Disney

Fed up of non-Africans telling African stories, three friends from Nigeria and Uganda have decided to create their own anthology.

Showcasing artists and writers from across Africa, they hope it will bring African comics to the mainstream.

They explain why it’s so important for Africans to share their own stories with the rest of the world.

    The comics are formed after a long time of the expedition. African comics go through a long term of research and then the comic books are published and printed. The time that is taken for the research is the time allotted for the feasibility study. In the period, many options are tested, characters are decided, the story is decided, whether it will be a good story to go with it. It is the initiation phase.
