Preview: MALIKA – FIRE & FROST (Free Comic Book Day Special)

YouNeek Studios are back! The Afrofuturist comics publisher, founded by Nigerian writer and entrepreneur Roye Okupe a few years back as a home for his storytelling universe of African heroes in a sci-fi setting returns with a Free Comic Book Day special.

Malika, the warrior queen of our title, has battled for her kingdom across two graphic novels and a couple of special one-shots to date, and her FCBD 2019 comic is an all-new story of time-lost Malika fighting evil forces in Nigeria’s dangerous future.

Malika, warrior queen and military commander of the 15th-century Azzazian Empire, has been flung into the year 2025, a dangerous future she’s struggling to understand.

After years of moving in the shadows, she’s forced out of hiding by a sinister plot that spans the centuries. Malika journeys to Egypt to retrieve the FireFrost stone, a relic that holds the combined power of two ancient dragons, from the hands of an absolute evil!

MALIKA series creator Roye Okupe and artists Sunkanmi Akinboye and Etubi Onucheyo bring you an all-new story for Free Comic Book Day full of superhero action inspired by African history and culture!

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Roye Okupe is an author, speaker, and entrepreneur who founded YouNeek Studios in 2012. He was named #5 on Ven­tures Africa’s list of “40 African Innovators to Watch” and was included in NewAfrican magazine’s “100 Most Influential Africans” two years in a row. With YouNeek Studios, Roye has created a connected universe of heroes with African origins in graphic novels that have been featured on CNN, Forbes, The New York Times, NBC, The Guardian, BBC, and Mashable among many others.

Sunkanmi Akinboye is a Nigeria-based illustrator specializing in comic books, graphic novels, and concept art.
