Spoof comics is another comic company that’s a subsidiary of another company. The brainchild Nigerian comic veteran Ayodele Elegba, Spoof comics features titles such as Vantage, Boxsa, Jinx and Voyager.
Ayodele Elegba is one of those comic book people everybody in the industry seems to know. He and Ibrahim Ganiyu were pretty big names when it comes to comics in Nigeria back in the day and they’ve both continued to trudge on down the comic creator path right along with everyone else, every step of the way. You might remember that he’s the creator of StrikeGuard which was a character he created and I believe was published with Vortex comics and also happens to be the proprietor of the Lagos comic con, which he has hosted for about, what? Seven years now?
I will admit that these titles actually look awesome and the art from Collins Momodu and Jonathan Sanni (Vantage) and the likes Nwankwo Newman (Central Attack and Voyager) is pretty good . Once again, the story for these titles leaves a little to be desired, but it’s an improvement. The titles at least the ones in release, like Vantage and Boxsa make for some interesting reading and I’m sure there is more to come from Spoof comics and their enigmatic characters. Watch this space.
