    One thought on “Malika - Warrior Queen Part One: An African Historical Fantasy Graphic Novel”

    1. I received a copy of this as part of a giveaway. There were a lot of things I really loved in this graphic novel. Historical-fantasy set in Africa? YES PLEASE. The art was beautiful, and the details about the inspiration behind the story were great. My only critique is that the world-building and grand scale of the story make it more world-driven than character-driven. I tend to like my fantasy deep on character and a bit lighter on world and politics, so I found it difficult at times to feel r [...]

    2. A good story burdened by less-than-serviceable artwork, MALIKA: WARRIOR QUEEN pulls a lot of strings, and dances in one too many shadows, to appear as competent as it does while yet lacking the rhetorical consistency or visual strength required to prevent readers from getting bored. An Africa-based, kingdom-spanning adventure greatly diversifies the shelf of graphic novels currently on the market. But will a lack of narrative coherence doom an otherwise clever concept?Queen Malika is intelligent [...]

    3. Malika fought to unite her people, and she'll fight to keep them from being conquered by the invading Chinese army. But when dissent starts to grow among her nation's leaders, will she be able to keep them united?Really colorful art is good but was sometimes distracting for this action-packed story. Good character development for Malika, plus a cliffhanger ending, makes me eager for next year's sequel.

    4. 3.5The art is decent. The characters are good. The mythology is wonderful. The queen is strong but afraid of vulnerability. The king is nurturing and strong. The old men are annoying and terrible. There's some really good things going on here. The main problem was the pacing. Parts of this are very choppy and jump from on thing to another too quickly, without buildup or preamble. Smooth out the rough edges, and this will be a spectacular title.

    5. Beautiful artwork, strong female lead, under-represented setting. I appreciate the author's notes throughout on the actual regions his fantastical settings are based on. I wished for a little more character development but appreciated the richness that occasional flashbacks gave to several of the characters.

    6. This book book did exactly what it was supposed to do. Gave me insight into the series and has me excited to continue the series. The artwork was gorgeous, although there was an error or two in the panels. The story was somewhat generalized but as an introduction to the book that was understandable.

    7. I don't read comics or graphic novels a ton, but this one was fun, and gorgeous, and beautiful. I loved the story coming from Africa, a setting that is often overlooked when it comes to comic book narratives. The artwork was just gorgeous, and the story is incredibly empowering. I'm really excited to read more in this series, and I'm so happy to share it with others.

    8. If you are a fan of historical female centered reads (think Mulan without the dress up and in alt-reality 15th century Africa) than you will want to pick up Roye Okupe's Malika. With strong characters, a plot that has you eager for the next volume, this series is a welcome addition to anyone looking for a more diverse, female-centric graphic novel read.

    9. This has an unfortunate number of typos, but the art and the storyline are both fabulous. I'll have to keep an eye out for the sequel.

    10. This is what the term Graphic Novel is all about. Had a great time reading this wonderful african based fantasy adventure and look forward to the next chapter.
