Description

E.X.O. – The Legend of Wale Williams is an award-winning science fiction/superhero story about redemption, set in a near-futuristic Africa (Lagos, Nigeria). Vol 3 begins a new saga, as Lagoon City bears witness to the rise of AVON, a super virus turned android conqueror. All of this takes place just three months after the fall of Oniku (the leader of the CREED extremist group), at the hands of EXO, aka Wale Williams. After a failed NOVA experiment grants him sentience, AVON sets his sights on using Lagoon City as the proving ground in his plot to “reset humanity.” Once again, Wale must stand in the way of an evil created by the very thing that makes him “super” – except this time, he must do so while bearing the weight of potentially losing everyone he loves.  Rated – T (Teen) | Page Count – 144 “Wale Williams, and his setting of ‘Lagoon City’ – is to Lagos what Gotham City is to New York.” – Forbes “E.X.O. – The Legend of Wale Williams is the fast-paced, afro-futuristic graphic novel from Roye Okupe” – CNN
