Orisha Pikin is one of the best and most consistent comicbook that Vortex Comics have published in recent months. That’s a great way to start this review, which we will be keeping completely spoiler-free. Archange Kiyindou (Yamakasi) teams up with Penciller, Nsatounkazi Déo as we witness the return of Charles Oma Betow, the great colorist behind the first and second issues of the comicbook while Franklin Uche took his place on the third issue to bring us the colorful backstory we all hold on to for now. With Yamakasi still leading as Creator, Writer and Art Director (and also letterer) the consistency of the characters, Sango’s stubbornness is felt in a whole new level and the respect to African culture is yet spilled on the dialogues between characters.

Okay, so i recently talked about Strike Guard and how he turned a power source for Nigeria’s Nepa but i didn’t know he had something to do with Vortex Comics’ latest release – Ekun #0. I’ll come back to this in a bit. Now 2 weeks ago we confirmed Comic Book Artist/ Colorist Kurolayefah Owugah will be joining the Vortex Comics team but we didn’t know what role the Shadow Justice #2 Co-creator will play at the Vortex community until now. He is part of the team members that brought Ekun to pages through Vortex. I’m really excited and we expect more from the Artist. Kudos to the entire Vortex team too. Like every comic I’ve reviewed in my years i promise not to leave any spoi… There’s an ancient form of African martial arts in Ekun #0… but I’ve forgotten what its called.
