Show Notes

On this video episode, we review “Djeliya” by Juni Ba from TKO Studios. Juni Ba’s new graphic novel is “A West African Fantasy Epic” and follows djeli (storyteller and advisor) Awa as she fights for (and with!) Monsour, heir to a throne, against gods and beasts for the rightful throne. Ba’s work artfully mixes Cartoon Network stylistics with folk narratives from Ba’s Senegal/West Africa, as he mentions in this great interview with the Comic Book Couples Counseling podcast. Paul unpacks some of why this book has jumped to the tops of his list, and Juni Ba to the group of creators Paul’s most excited about.
