Captain Calabar

Cap square

The comic is designed to deliver hard graphic action, comic humour, and a touch of the satirical, whilst showcasing the beauty and artsy nature of Nigeria and Africa one issue at a time.

Three dynamic creators, Timehin Akinde, Abasido Akpan, and Joshua Akpan are responsible for CC. As architecture students, they were obsessed with creating something to showcase Nigeria’s artsy settings to the world. Looking at the vastly underdeveloped comic industry in Africa, they found application for design and devised a means to infuse beauty into the story. “Heroes that speak our language!” While both Akpans handled the art, Timehin worked as the chief writer for the series. Art meets storytelling!

Methodically, Akbar Comics plans to unfold a Comicverse laden with heroes of varying cultures and nationalities. Captain Calabar isn’t just a comic, it’s a movement. The goal at Akbar Comics is to create a lasting African comic book universe made by Africans and to redefine the art form whilst opening doors for fellow African creatives.

Issue #1 – Page 2

The first issue of Captain Calabar is already COMPLETE! Comedy, action, art, colours, letters and mild perversion are already on the page and ready to go! However, funding is required for production costs associated with making issues #2 onwards.

Issue #1 – Page 18

Insidia

“Insidia” a Latin word for deceit or treachery.

My piece captures the modern interpretation of emotions. Nowadays having feelings is considered as weak. As not having “balls” whereas the main purpose of us being human is our ability to feel. I have tried to capture these emotions in my best light and hope that people who view my work will also be able to feel the same emotions as I, because our emotions are truths, not deceit. –

Ayo Busari presents: Light Painting

The light shines bright
It illuminates what it touches
People are so used to it
They forget to appreciate the beauty of light
I illuminate
I turn the light to paintings
I do so without paint brushes and a pallet
I will awaken your mind to new world wonders.

Name: “Eyo Festival Explosion”

Medium: Acrylic paint on watercolour paper

This art piece was done to explore motion, emotions and vivid colour schemes. I also experimented with colours and how they affect the mood of the person viewing the work. It was inspired by the popular Nigerian cultural Eyo festival that I attended which took place in Lagos, Nigeria.
