A graphic novel titled KARIBA raised over US$ 35K on Kickstarter

KARIBA is a fantasy-adventure graphic novel inspired by the mythology and history surrounding the construction of one of the largest dams ever built in southern Africa. Drawn and colored by Daniel Clarke, the graphic novel is being designed and written with help from the team at Blue Forest Collective based in Cape Town, South Africa. Kariba has raised over 35,000 USD, and counting, on Kickstarter, vastly outstripping its original target of $20,000 USD. The book is scheduled to be finished by the end of September 2016, and will be shipped out to backers in January 2017.

The story follows Siku and Amadeo, one the daughter of the river spirit Nyami Nyami, the other the son of the engineer in charge of the dams construction. Unaware of who her father is Siku must journey upriver to discover the answers to the mystery of her powers, and the strange events occurring in the river and its surrounding forests. Check out the video below and head across to the Kickstarter page to see the ever-increasing total.
