South Africa’s favourite comic hero is now available in isiZulu and isiXhosa.
The bind-up of the first three Kwezi comics, which tell the story of a classic young hero in a Johannesburg-esque fictional city, will be released in two new languages this month.
The brainchild of South African artist Loyiso Mkize, Kwezi was released to critical acclaim in 2016. 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.
These two new editions will make their first appearances in Gauteng at the South African Book Fair and in Cape Town at the Open Book Festival. The comics will be available from our store and all good books shops from mid-September.
