Why Us?

Something New

Like you, we are frustrated by the lack of African inspired content in mainstream entertainment (comics, animation, gaming, etc.). But rather than complain, we have chosen to do something about it.

Award-Winning Content

Our stories have stood the test of time. Garnering several prestigious awards over the years. Why? Because we believe in creating great characters whom EVERYONE can relate to. No gimmicks, publicity stunts, events or reboots/relaunches. Just fresh, unique and compelling stories and heroes that draw you in and keep you hooked.

Representation Matters

There’s a vast wealth of history and culture native to Africa that the world can be entertained, educated and inspired by. Because of that, there’s a movement of African inspired creatives and storytelling. You don’t be on the outside looking in.

OVER 100,000 OF OUR AWARD-WINNING, AFRICAN INSPIRED TITLES HAVE MADE THEIR WAY INTO THE HANDS OF VERY HAPPY READERS!

Malika NFT

NFTs – The Warrior Queen Collection

The Warrior Queen Collection is a selection of art inspired by the Malika – Warrior Queen series – An multi-award-winning graphic novel series spanning several volumes currently being published by Dark Horse Comics. These pieces were created EXCLUSIVELY as NFTs for fans of YouNeek Studios, collectors and the general NFT community at large to own a part of our YouNiverse.

We would not be who we are today without our fans (old, new and yet to come) and are super excited at the opportunity to be able to share, in a meaningful way, assets that truly connect people to and with our YouNiverse.

What is Malika?

Malika – Warrior Queen is a historical fantasy epic that takes place in 15th century West Africa. The award-winning graphic novel series was initially self-published by Roye Okupe via his YouNeek Studios outfit. In 2021, after selling over 100,000 copies and garnering 750,000 views (and counting) on Youtube for the animated short film, Dark Horse struck a partnership with YouNeek to republish the series in what was a monumental, 10-book deal announcement.
