[PHOTOS] ALL ABOUT THE JUST CONCLUDED LAGOS COMICON 2015.

With the poor reading culture in Nigeria, one would have felt delving into comic writing, illustration and publishing is going to be ‘a long walk’ to breaking even not to talk of erking out a sustainable living in the comic business.
  We reported live from Toyin street, water parks yesterday in lagos where the two days event took place:

The event was proudly supported by INDOMIE NOODLES, JOVAGO PLAYZONE,UR4 MEDIA,VIJU,EASYTAXI and COMIC-PANEL.

In attendance were WHITE HOUSE MEDIA the sole distributor of WACOM digital tablets in Nigeria, HANNAH FACIALS, CLEEC DESIGN,POPCY, YOUNEEK STUDIOS, SHADOWBLACK ENTERTAINMENT and CEREBRAL MEDIA just to mention a few.
  Speaking with some exhibitors about bottlenecks facing the industry in the event; Dewunmi Roye Okupe of YOUNEEK Studios and Sanu of BLACKSMITHS CHRONICLES unanimously confirmed that poor funding and pirated distribution networks are still the major setbacks plaguing the industry.
       In a   media chat    with   Ayodele ‘dreamaker’ Elegba (founder of Lagos Comicon), Mr Elegba added that the Government and independent film producers not seeing comic/storyboard artists as relevant to Nollywood is another major setback-he further added that  most nollywood producers would prefer drama rather than complex action shots that would require storyboard arts-he said and i quote “producers are scared of putting too much money into serious films when comedies and dramas can make more money and with less budget”.
