ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Born in Lagos, Nigeria, Roye Okupe is a creative specialist who holds both a Bachelor’s and Masters in computer science from The George Washington University. His passion for animation led him to found YouNeek Studios in 2012, an avenue that would allow him to pursue his dream of creating a diverse library of superheroes. Under that umbrella, Roye wrote, produced and directed several animated productions including, but not limited to, 2D/3D animated short films, TV commercials, show openers, music videos and much more. These productions have allowed Roye to attain many prestigious recognitions such as being #5 on Ventures Africa’s list of 40 African innovators to watch (2016) as well as being part of NewAfrican Magazines’ 100 most influential Africans two years in a row (2016 & 2017).

With the superhero genre currently at the height of popularity, Roye has made it a goal to create a connected universe of heroes, with origins from locations that are currently neglected and/or ignored. In August 2015, Roye released his debut graphic novel titled: E.X.O.

  1. RaisingBlack

    E.X.O is a solid action adventure with a fresh look and approach that is needed in this genre.

    The story follows Wale Williams and his complex family history before he becomes the hero he is destined to be. The setting and art are deeply vivid. The book shows a future Africa that lives up to its potential but still grapples with issues and challenges that only a hero can solve. Okupe has a real vision for a superhero universe set in a place that many other superhero universes either only visit or undersell. Pick this book up and get in at the ground floor of a great book with a bright future. This story moves fast and it is easy to gloss over the art but take the time go back and really see the details. My only critique of this book is that I would like to see the world and cast become a bigger star. Africa of 2025 is a playground of politics and dreams and we want more.

    Its 1 of the best comics i read, beside the plot and charcaters that draws the reader to the story and is easily easy to understand whats acquring the artist who drew the pictures with the combination with the plot and charcaters makes it eye candy itll make u want to be in the plot as an character yourself to help malika if u want to read an intersting comic merge with history and fiction with powerful intersting characters and plot and babging pictures dog u r looking at the book trust me cope it u will enjoy it like i did

    One of my favorite aspect of this series is how much family plays a part in this series. The story centers around Wale each of his supporting characters play a essential role to his development and rise as a hero. I instantly got hooked to story. Setting this story in Africa was perfect because it plays a massive part in the story as well. I’m anxiously waiting for volume 3. And even if some of the twist you can see a mile away it’s played up perfectly to continue further. Consider me a fan of this series and looking forward to the rest of the series.

  5. Press Reactions

    “Bout time.”
    – Jamie Foxx

    “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

    The artwork and writing on E.X.O. The Legend of Wale Williams is excellent..Reading a story taking place in a futuristic Africa is definitely a welcome change from the usual stories taking place in various cities in the U.S.

  7. tasha_turner

    Great deal for both books. The artwork is fantastic. Storylines are good. It’s great reading a story in futuristic Africa. Great way to get kids to read. I’ve gifted these and the kids say the books are: cool, awesome, fun, exciting, more please.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this series. Some of the progression of the story did seem a little cliche but I liked how the two main characters played off each other with Benji as comic relief. Also liked the translation as I’ve heard some of those terms used in my own family as well. Definitely a recommended read! It has me looking forward to the next series coming out.

    Both my son and I are captivated. We ahve thoroughly enjoyed these co.ics thus far and I’m committed to purchasing every last copy in each series. Keep up the high quality of production and creativity. Love all the way from Trinidad and Tobago!
