Greetings true believers! It's always a ball to have some time set aside to get to know who's doing what from home in the digital content space. While we do love and appreciate every single one of our characters from Image, Marvel and DC (just to name a few), we can't forget the minds that are working towards creating the future.
And I like to put it this way, if Storm is Kenyan and was the partner to T'challa on Earth 616 in the comics, why shouldn't we showcase our own creative 'superheroes' and showcase them to you all?
I had the honor and privilege to speak to Mutendei Akhaya Mutendei. He has been spotted in NAICCON and has been known to have a mind for the creative. This is what he had to say...
WHO IS MUTENDEI AND WHAT NAME(S) DO YOU LIKE TO GO BY?
Mutendei is a creative fiction writer and Comic book producer, with a specific focus on African/African American History, African mythology and current social issues.
WHAT DREW YOU TO YOUR INTERESTS IN THE CREATIVE?

IS THERE ANY LEGEND OR KENYAN MYTH THAT SPEAKS TO YOUR EXPERIENCE THAT YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE ABOUT?
