I think this is a really great idea that really SHOULD be fiddled with in the future of African comics
When I first published Are Africa’s Heroes truly African? One of the questions I remember been faced with was “should African comics encourage Juju?” but I think the more important question is are African comics encouraging Juju and does returning to our African roots necessarily require the involvement of Juju and similar sorts of mysticism?
First of all I would like us to learn a little bit about Juju! What is it? What is it’s relation to the African culture? Why did it come up in the first place?
Juju according to wikipedia refers to a spiritual belief system incorporating objects, such as amulets, and spells used in religious practice, as part of witchcraft in West Africa. The keyword here is witchcraft which we all know is plainly Bad but what does it have to do with African culture and what does it have to do with African comics.
