…a tale focused on proving the popular adage ‘disability is not inability’

Karmzah follows the story of Morowa Adjei, an archaeologist who lives with cerebral palsy, and who amazingly gains superpowers through her crutches enabling her to be able to become her superhero alter ego, Karmzah. She uses her newly acquired abilities to do incredible and astounding acts of heroism and make the world around her a better and safer place. It’s definitely a comic worth reading for all action and superhero story lovers.

The idea for Karmzah was conceived by Farida Bedwei in Kigali (Rwanda) while listening to Eyram Tawia during a session on Leti Arts and the beautiful art of comics. According to Farida, she wondered why she’d never seen herself represented in comics before.

She loved the craft but had never read of a superhero with her condition, Cerebral Palsy. Cerebral Palsy is the number one disability in children globally and yet somehow, in 2018, there weren’t any comic books that people living with the condition could find solace in.

So she thought, “if there’s something you want that isn’t there, why not create it”? Farida wanted a story she could immediately identify with so it just made sense to create one. Farida’s imagination ran wild as she fine-tuned her idea.

    I’m not sure what I was expecting going into the book, but the premise and set up for the world definitely had me interested enough to find out more. The art is solid and the characters have depth. My only qualm, is the power system/super natural element which I hope is expanded on in future issues.
