A bind-up of the first three Kwezi comics. Created by South African artist Loyiso Mkize, Kwezi is the classic young hero in a coming of age tale who tends to deal with his own insecurities by being a braggart. Whereas DC Comics heroes operate in fictional cities such as Gotham and Metropolis, Kwezi is based in Gold City, a stand-in for Johannesburg, South Africa.
Self-aware and nuanced, Kwezi compares with Robert Kirkman and Cory Walker’s Invincible in terms of a teen hero and the theme of responsibilities of family, friends and civilization.
Mkize has been creating comics professionally since 2009, and is one of the main artists of one of the most popular comics in the world: the African sports comic Supa Strikas, which has a circulation of more than a million copies monthly.
The clash between good and evil in a South African context.
