ComicsDI is a fast rising comic brand which over the years has developed expertise in the field of art and creativity. It has a bias for creativity within the African context. In 2016, it rebranded from Divine International to ‟ComicsDI” to capture more clearly what it sees as the big picture of the brand. We strongly believe that aside the genres of poetry, creative writing, acting and music, another aspect of art that has immense potential to entertain and impact but has been less explored is the genre of comics.
