Ziki Nelson is a comic book writer and the co-founder of Kugali a media company that showcases the best African stories using comics, art and animation. Prior to starting Kugali Nelson embarked on a career in banking and finance but after less than a year decided to pursue his childhood dream of becoming a comic book creator. Several years on Nelso has worked on several comic books that include:

Newborn Saga: an epic fantasy adventure series set across various ancient African Kingdoms. Originally created by Peda Studio (a Nigerian comic book and animation company) Newborn was funded on Kickstarter in 2016 and has gone on to win numerous awards.

After Newborn Saga Nelson went on to create his own comic series in 2017:
Iku, a dark fantasy set in 13th century West Africa. The story follows the plight of the titular character, a wandering mercenary plagued by a violent curse that forces him to see the spirits of the dead. The story touches on themes of isolation, death, moral relativism and the
fundamental nature of conscious beings ie are we inherently good or evil and if so is it possible to change our nature?

Iku will debut as part of the Kugali Anthology, a collection of comics inspire by various African cultures. When not working on Iku, Nelson supports the anthology as a publisher and editor and the stories featured int he publication include a wide range on genres ranging from epic fantasy to Afrofuturist space adventures.

Nelson’s work has been featured on several websites and publications including Nerdist, Design Indaba and Konbini. Outside of comics and
Kugali, Nelson is also a podcaster hosting a show known as Manga College, a podcast that examines the art of storytelling for comics and has also written for several blogs and publications including the Guardian, Bleeding Cool and Fortress of Solitude.
