11th Graphic Novel Day Elnathan John: On Ajayi Crowther Street

Like a Nollywood soap opera, Lagos’ noisy Ajayi Crowther Street provides the setting for a morality tale about what goes on behind closed doors: secret affairs, an illegitimate pregnancy, hypocrisy, rape. But on Sundays, the neighbourhood always comes together at church. »A compelling read, and a fine addition to a genre that all too rarely lifts its gaze beyond Europe and North America.« [The Guardian]
