Hi there! My name is Roye, writer & creator of the E.X.O., Malika & WindMaker graphic novels! Since 2015, my mission has been to create superhero stories based on diverse characters, from parts of the world that don’t get enough attention when it comes to said stories. And that’s why I founded YouNeek Studios. Since then, I’ve been fortunate to have my work featured on CNN, The Washington Post, Forbes, The New York Times, Huffington Post & more! We’ve even got hollywood star Jamie Foxx raving about our characters (see below). So far so good!  Click the button below to follow our journey and to read chapters 1 & 2 of E.X.O., Malika and WindMaker for FREE! You also get access to other free content I’ll be releasing in the future.

“Wale Williams, and his setting of ‘Lagoon City’ – is to Lagos what Gotham City is to New York.”

– Forbes

“…None of the independent books really caught my eye until I noticed Malika… ….We need to bring attention to those, like Okupe, who are doing it right and support them in their endeavors to show those with the will to look, how massive and incredible and diverse the world is.”

– Book Riot

“E.X.O. – The Legend of Wale Williams is the fast-paced, afro-futuristic graphic novel from Roye Okupe”
