AFRI KUTI – Kuti#41 – Autumn 2016
Hey you westerner! We’re very proud to present our special issue on contemporary African comics! Afri Kuti is compiled and edited by our guest editors Rui Tenreiro & Jonah Sack. We decided to do this issue all in English and have Finnish translation in subtitles.
Features 16 authors in all with works from seven countries in Africa:
Jonah Sack (South Africa), Luntu Vumazonke / KIF (South Africa), Koffi Roger N’Guessan (Ivory Coast), Mongo Sisé (Democratic Republic of the Congo), Philip Ndunguru (Tanzania), Michael Maqungo (South Africa), Sérgio Zimba (Mozambique), Mark Kannemeyer (South Africa), Motshumi Mogorosi (South Africa), Jimga Jimoh Ganiyu (Nigeria), Sunday Mgakama & Sanna Hukkanen (Tanzania/Finland), Theophil R. Mnyavanu (Tanzania), Nicko Odinyo (Kenya), Ree Treweek (South Africa) and Joanne Bloch (South Africa).
In our search on ‘what contemporary African comic may mean’ we asked for two views on the subject in a form of articles – French Christophe Cassiau-Haurie asks ‘What makes an African comic?’ while South African Sean O’Toole gives us ‘An Imperfect History’ of South African comics.
Cover by Sérgio Zimba. 28 pages in all with edition of 7 000 pcs.
And just to remind again: Kuti is a non-profit thing and a free paper BUT we need SUBSCRIBERS as well. To support what we do you can subscribe to Kuti in HERE.
