Gather round, brethren. Now there has been a thousand and one rumours about the Orisha Pikin Comicbook series and the sudden disappearance of some of its favourite characters. We haven’t heard from Baba Orunmila since the first two issues, and this is understandable. He seemed to have been dominant or influential in the classrooms alone. But what about Jesus! Let’s talk about Jesus for a second. Everyone has been so distracted with Sango’s troubles, eshu’s mischiefs and Obatala’s good looks that we failed to notice that Jesus disappeared the day Sango allegedly killed *Sannkofamaan. Orisha Pikin is the only comicbook I’ve read that Jesus wasn’t necessary for everyone. Y’all need Jesus. For real! On a lighter note: In a recent interview with the creator of the Orisha Pikin franchise, he stated that “Jesus has been secured as a recurring character with a major influence in the story. ” Which means we’ll be seeing more of…

Orisha Pikin was one of the Dandiest things that happened to the African Comic Space between late 2016 and early 2017.  Then one beautiful morning, the creator pulled off its single publishing company, Vortex comics for some controversial reasons. On the brighter side, we caught up with the creator of Orisha Pikin last week and asked a few questions about the Comicbook Sam: Okay, so we haven’t heard from your team since you left Vortex and we wanted to know if  we’ll still get to read new issues of Orisha Pikin this year. Yamakasi: Op5 should drop around September and October. From there it’s going to be published every two months with no interruption. Sam: Awesome! So it’s a continuation of what we’ve experienced from the past? Yamakasi: Yeah! It’s a continuation Sam: Cool! What should the fans expect from these upcoming issues? Yamakasi: There is something new in the designs of the…

It’s no longer news that the most recent issue of the mesmerizing Orisha Pikin got out this month. If you have not read it then checkout the spoiler free review by clicking here. We will wait for you. Orisha Pikin is one of Vortex Comics Continuous Comicbooks alongside Strike Guard and…. Sam, help me out here. What other Vortex comicbook trends at the moment? Sam: So many… There’s Avono No! Christ No! What is wrong with you!? Sam: Sannkofamaan? What!? Dude, he died… In Orisha Pikin! Sam: Oh! Yeah.  They’ve got June XII and Fela… Anikulapo Cool. Orisha Pikin is one of Vortex Comics Continuous Comicbooks alongside Strike Guard, June XII and Anikulapo and the story so far has been captivating. The Creator of Orisha Pikin, Kiyindou Yamakasi recently shared a first look at an animated storyboard for Orisha Pikin and it looks promising. You could spot Orunmila, Obatala and Sango? in the storyboard clip. The small…

Never a period in the history of African comic that a comic book fandom has been so intensely interesting like in recent months. OrishaPikin, a Vortex Inc. title which is currently in its Issue 4 and written by talented KiyindouYamakasi has seen some of us pitch tent with our favourite god (character) in a positive way that even God himself will be jealous! Hypnotised with the story, some of us children of God can now boldly say we “rep” an Orisha. I for one belong to Team Sango. (My pastor should come and beat me!) In case you don’t know, Orisha Pikin literally translates Children of god! Hilarious as it may seem, Orisha Pikin sweetly called OP by fans, was surely peppered and salted by a nourish, educative and positive story arc as well as a great art that makes one devour all and still lick ones lips in anticipation…

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. At some point, it all looks like Sango’s life and dialogue is unscripted. We blame that part on the fact that the…

I really don’t know what to say again. Orisha Pikin keeps getting better and better. This is one carefully prepared story that started off with a pilot issue #0. Somehow it became a comicbook we all look up to roll out a new issue each month since it’s first issue. Sam already testified to it. The comicbook was so pure, it had Jesus in it – No pun intended. Sango was arrested for the murder of Sannkofamaan and apprehended by the Zangbeto (Spirit Police) to Tubu Orun, an infamous prison for evil creatures where Miss Koi Koi is the boss. In the last issue of Orisha Pikin, We almost got a chance to meet the infamous Miss Koi Koi before the writers threw us back to (spoilers ahead……..) Sango and Oya’s backstory and it made a huge load of sense. Backstories – They help us understand the characters, their intents and how…
