The Journey Continues Next Fall In “Iyanu: Child Of Wonder Volume 3”
by Brendan M. Allen
Dark Horse Books and YouNeek Studios have announced the next chapter in the tale of Iyanu in Iyanu: Child of Wonder Volume 3. Writer and head of YouNeek Studios Roye Okupe is joined by artist Chima Kalu, colorist and cover artist Godwin Akpan, and letterer Spoof Animation to bring you this empowering tale inspired by African culture, history, and mythology.
Iyanu is soon to be an HBO Max/Cartoon Network animated series. The Iyanu tale is part of a shared universe of African fantasy and superhero stories—the YouNeek YouNiverse.
In this new volume, Iyanu makes her way to the Source to save all of Yorubaland from an ancient curse. She has help from her new friends: Biyi, a carefree adventurer; Toye, the bookworm; and Ekun, the magical and opinionated giant leopard! Together, all four—known as Team Chosen—embark on an epic adventure full of twists, turns, and laughs that will change their lives forever.
Iyanu: Child of Wonder Volume 3 will be available for $19.99 in bookstores August 22, 2023 and comic shops August 23, 2023.
