Hi my friend! It’s your boy Junior Beckley. If you’re watching this page, it means that you know the importance of taking action, and you want to support Muntu Warriors. I can’t thank you enough for that! Your help, whatever it is, is greatly welcomed. I will give you 4 things you can do, from best to worst, to support Muntu Warriors.
2- Buy the Comic books
Get your comic books of Muntu Warriors and enjoy a black owned universe combining good artworks from an anime and videogame style, a great and intriguing story, and an universe of superheroes empowering black culture with fiction. The Origin Stories are individual stories of the 20 heroes of Muntu Warriors. Each character has his episode, and their adventures are at some point connected to the main story.
These comic books are in English. For the french versions, click here
3- Donate on Paypal
Creating a comic book is no easy feat, and as an independent creator, I face numerous challenges on a daily basis. One of the biggest obstacles I encounter is funding. Without a large budget or financial backing, it can be difficult to produce high-quality content at a quick pace. Another challenge I face is not being financially able to travel to other countries or participate in events. This can make it difficult to network, build a following, and gain exposure for my work. Last but not least, another challenge is multitasking. As an independent creator, I’m responsible for not just the creative side of things, but also the business side, such as marketing, website building, networking and promotion. This can be a juggling act at times.
This is where your support comes in. By donating, you’re helping to alleviate some of the financial burden and allowing me to focus more on the creating aspect. Your support also helps me reach a wider audience and build a community around my work. Also, to delegate the other tasks to people who’ll be far better than me to give you the best services. Overall, creating a comic book is a challenging and complex process, but with your help, I’m able to overcome these obstacles and bring Muntu Warriors to life.
benefits of using Paypal
impact of the donations
The donations collected will serve to print copies and stocks to participate to events and sell signed copies directly to customers.
Participation to events
The donations will serve to purchase vendor places to display my books during events. And to be able to participate as a vendor in events such as Business Africa, Ubuntu Festival, Natural Hair Academy, Book and Youth Fairs, and even fairs in Africa, Asia, America and Europe.
Licenses, subscriptions, Taxes and softwares
These are all the elements used to make Muntu Warriors work. All these expenses are not negligible.
The funds raised will also make it possible to make use of Facebook, Instagram, and Tiktok to promote the books. They will also allow to pay for interviews, articles made by the media, and appear on TV channels.
In the long term, the funds will allow for the distribution of Muntu Warriors all over the world, in bookstores and stores. The idea is to target English- and French-speaking countries.
Build a team
So far, I am the only one fully working on Muntu Warriors. And this project cannot be done alone. But with a team, anything is possible. So, the donations will be used to recruit a team that will support me on the project, and allow me to create better content.
By supporting Muntu Warriors, you’re not just investing in a project, you’re investing in a movement. My goal is to inspire and empower kids, especially those from black and African communities, by giving them heroes they can identify with and be proud of. But it’s not just for them; it’s for anyone who wants to connect with black and African culture and heritage, and to promote diversity and representation in the world of comics.
No matter how big or small, every contribution counts. Even a small tip can make a difference in bringing this project to life, help make a difference and support the movement for representation in comics. So if you only give or help once a month, please think about Muntu Warriors next time.
