2019 Creators for Creators Grant recipients, Nigerian brothers SHOBO and SHOF, present NEW MASTERS, a groundbreaking blend of science fiction, adventure, drama, and vibrant Afrofuturism. In a striking vision of West Africa under the thumb of alien colonizers, a motley crew of outcasts find themselves caught up in a power struggle for control of an ancient artifact with immense power.
“I had no idea, when we all picked this book for CfC, that, as good as it looked then, it would turn out this BEAUTIFUL. Amazing work!” —Charlie Adlard, THE WALKING DEAD
“Shobo and Shof give us an original, beautifully crafted sci-fi with NEW MASTERS. It’s an incredible debut from a distinctly African perspective. Shof’s rhythmic storytelling, palettes, and world building visuals perfectly seam with Shobo’s intriguing cast of heroes, cut throats, and politicians like only brothers can. Immerse yourself in this new world, you won’t regret it!” —Nick Dragotta, EAST OF WEST
