Nigerian brothers and co-creators Shobo Coker(Buckhead) and Shof Coker (“Moremi” feature in Kizazi Moto: Generation Fire) portray a striking vision of West Africa under the thumb of alien colonizers in the forthcoming New Masters. The trade paperback edition will collect issues #1-6 of the immersive Afrofuturist series and land in stores from Image Comics this October.
The Coker brothers are a debut creative team and were the recipients of the 2019 Creators for Creators grant.
New Masters follows a motley crew of outcasts who find themselves caught up in a power struggle for control of an ancient artifact with immense power. This is the perfect sci-fi story for fans of N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth trilogy and Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Black Panther.
New Masters will be available on Wednesday, October 19 and in bookstores on Tuesday, October 25. It can be found at local comic book shops, independent bookstores, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo. New Masters is also available across many digital platforms, including Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and Google Play.
