PORTLAND, Ore. 09/07/2022 — 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 (ISBN: 978-1534323384, Diamond Code AUG220145) 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.
