From the publisher:
"The Initiation is the first book in the 360 Degrees trilogy.
 
While the last two decades have seen the emergence of several significant black political cartoonists and comic artists, Mogorosi Motshumi is the first black South African comic artist to produce a long-form graphic autobiography. At more than 300 pages, 360 Degrees, to be released in three volumes, is one of the most substantial works of graphic literature to emerge from South Africa to date."
 
The Inititiation os published by Chimurenga, a pan African platform of writing, art and politics founded by Ntone Edjabe in 2002. Drawing together a myriad voices from across Africa and the diaspora, Chimurenga takes many forms operating as an innovative platform for free ideas and political reflection about Africa by Africans.
 
24.3 x 16.7 cm | 136 pages | softcover
