Kickstart this: E.X.O. – The Legend of Wale Williams Part One

Last month we had the opportunity to interview Roye Okupe the Owner/Creative Director at YouNeek Studios and the creator of the upcoming graphic novel EXO: The Legend of Wale William.

This month, Okupe launched a Kickstarter for his graphic novel and reached his goal in three days! With 11 days left, Okupe has stretch goals that he would like to reach. Here’s what the project’s all about:

E.X.O. – The Legend of Wale Williams is a superhero story about redemption, set in a futuristic 2025 Africa. The graphic novel will be broken into two parts. Part one, which is 130 pages, is already halfway completed (with fully colored pages with lettering) and is set for release August 2015. You can read the first chapter for FREE right here on my website.

I started this Kickstarter campaign because I am on the last leg of this very long and amazing journey. Production costs have already been taken care of and all that’s left is printing. Now I need YOU to help get this project over the finish line. I plan to send a completed part one (130 pages) of the book for print by the end of June. The estimated cost for 1000 copies is about $3500.

So, friends, family and superhero fans all over the world, I humbly ask you for your help in making my lifelong dream come true by guaranteeing that E.X.O. becomes a reality!  Thank you all for your support!


I don’t know about you but I’m very excited for this project. If you can help Kickstart this!
