    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.
