The Narrow Escape: Character Sketches

In 2003, I was having talks with Literamed Publications Nig Ltd to create comic books for them. But after a while I discovered I needed a team. It was difficult for me to do this and still maintain my illustration studio. Hence in the next year, I prepared breakdowns and character sketches on the the second story I was working on- the adaptation of a story written by Prof. Akachi Ezeigbo. Posted here are some of the character sheets based on my perception of the story.

I think the original tale was titled Enuma and the Kidnappers. The Cowrie Comics adaptation is titled The Narrow Escape.
