Featured on CNN, FORBES, BBC and more, E.X.O. – The Legend of Wale Williams Part One is a superhero story about redemption, set in a futuristic, 2025 Africa! The 136 page graphic novel follows the journey of Wale Williams, an impetuous young man who inherits a suit with super powers after his father goes missing. Tricked into returning home to Lagoon City, Nigeria following a five year absence, Wale embarks on a journey to investigate his father’s mysterious disappearance. As he comes to understand the suit’s powers, Wale realizes he must restore hope to his city by preventing catastrophic attacks from the sociopathic, Oniku, leader of an extremist group called The CREED.

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

– Forbes

    “A futuristic African city and a black superhero with predominantly black supporting characters”
    – Mashable

    The designs are very slick and futuristic, and ignore some of the design stereotypes which frequently turn up in many “African set” productions created by less intimate creators. At an initial glance, it has all of fast paced action and hi-tech superhero antics that you would expect of most animated action series on Cartoon Network or NickToons, only it is featuring a brand new hero for a brand new era. The world is a big place, and there’s room for heroes from all lands in it. Keep an eye out for the first volume of “EXO: the Legend of Wale Williams” this summer!
    – The Examiner

    “In a time when the public is beginning to demand for a more diverse slate of superhero comics and movies, YouNeek Studios aims to fill that gap with a library of eclectic characters.”
    – Black Girl Nerds

    “EXO certainly looks like a fun, well thought-out project, and something that could indeed go far towards putting Africa on the superhero fiction map.”
    – FEVA TV

    My 8 yr old son asks me each week since he got Part 1, if I can get him Part 2. Can wait for additional works and cartoon.

      Wow! Thanks for mentioning that Bruce! Honestly it’s because of people like him and you that I keep pushing to put out these stories! Thanks for making my day 🙂

    I like the art but it lacks a interesting story and I find it to be pretty boring and the main character is rich and smart but acts like someone who isn’t smart most of the time

    This book is amazing, my nephew and I enjoyed every minute of it. He was so excited when I gave him part one and two. I’m so happy he finally has a super hero that he could relate too. Great job

    Just finished EXO The Legend of Wale Williams Saga One Part 2 by independent creator and bro Roye Okupe!
    An excellent graphic novel that helps continue to prove that great stories can be done with creators and characters of color.
    Big props also to the artist of the graphic novel, Sunkanmi Akinboye! Every page was better than the last! The quality artwork in this OGN is inspirational. *Cough aspiring artist*.
    Godwin Akpan amazing cover art! Raphael Kazeem aka the colorist set the tone for every panel with finesse 🔥.
    Props to editor Ayodele Elegba without a doubt!
    Following in the footsteps of greatness here. Taking notes everytime!

    One of the best new comics I’ve read in a while and maybe the most intriguing new superhero I’ve read in forever. Okupe’s storytelling is sharp and refreshing and doesn’t put you through the paces like many new superhero comics du jour. Wale Williams is a hero that is actually relatable to today’s youth. (Seriously.) Plus the setting and world of Lagoon City is just begging for deeper exploration. The fact that this is one of the first ever African heroes created by an all-African team is groundbreaking in the industry and just icing on the cake for E.X.O.’s strong creative. This is a book to pick up and absolutely a creator to watch.
