A continuation of a sci-fi historical retelling by the minds behind Hawi. We find ourselves in the African alliance after the signing of the treaty between the Mero aliens, but there were some hidden costs. Just like in real life, the Mero were not fully honest about what they wanted and Zufan was in a hurry to sign it.
Part of the story is told months after the signing and part is told not long after the signing, when the Mero deception has been found out. Lurking in the background are the cunniving leaders of the CMWA out of Mali, who lost to Zufan in the election. There is an important lesson here on the nature of trust vis-a-vie national interest. Something that Kofi and Nkem learn the hard, painful way.
The art showed a bit of improvement though I liked the art in #1 more, especially the key scenes. But in other scenes I found it lacking. Not that I expect every scene to get the artistic treatment. Yet I think some scenes could have been better with greater lighting emphasis. Ah well- they'll improve next time.
And it seems like there will be a next time. Lots of backers for this one, which is always a good sign. I think this will be a series I can follow to start to finish. And so should you.
Look for Zufan on Kickstarter and their website here.
