Nigerian comics publisher focuses on female superheroes

This Nigerian startup wants to promote Nigeria’s comic industry with their uniquely African superhero stories and female action heroes.

“There is a lack of female heroes in the African scene in general,” said creative director Tobe Ezeogu. “We wanted female characters that would become icons to the African girl growing up.”
