An adventure set in Ghana with an emphasis on environment

The Monterey County Weekly highlighted a comic by a security specialist titled Maritime Domain Awareness Man:
Kyarra Harris here, thinking about comic books and how important it is to support local artists and business owners who provide these beloved stories to us. My colleague Aga Popęda spoke to Nick Tomb about his new comic book series The Adventures of Maritime Domain Awareness Man, which will hit the shelves next month, April 4.

The series is about a Ghanaian boy named Kofi who discovers he has superpowers that alert him to dangers in the sea, and his friend Esi who wants to be an ocean advocate and scientist when she grows up. Tomb came up with the story idea (at first it was a joke) while working on an integrated maritime strategy for Ghana in his job with the Institute for Security Governance in Monterey. [...]

He calls the series a “21st century adventure” because the art style and overall feel of the comic book is different from the mainstream superheroes we are familiar with. Children are the target audience of this series, but Tomb says anyone who advocates for the environment will enjoy the story. With the characters’ background and setting of the story taking place in Ghana, readers are sure to learn something about the country’s culture too.
While I think it's great to learn about Ghana's culture, I honestly think it's a shame the author took the all too easy path of focusing on environmental issues, rather than Islamic terrorism that's plagued the African continent as much as anywhere else. So many independent comics on the market, and too few of them are willing to tackle the most challenging issues in modern times, unfortunately.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
