One might be tempted to believe from comic strip reference books that Africa has no locally produced comic strips as no mention is made of them. This is the case, for example, in Histoire mondiale de la BD (World History of Comic Strips) and the Dictionnaire de la BD (Dictionary of Comic Strips). And yet, authentically African comic strips have existed in certain countries for thirty years.
I thought I’d highlight this article which I’d blogged about at the old Mae Mai site, as it seems like it will soon be only available in internet search engine caches. It has lots of info about African comics, titles, creators, countries.
I believe I have a version of it saved with the images, so I’ll have to find them and maybe created an archival Mae Mai post about it.
