Surveying the debates about race that enliven and confuse daily life in South Africa, this album of underground comics brings together artwork and pointed satire to tackle colonialism and its ongoing legacy. The book adopts the style of Hergé’s Tintin for its cover, but that innocent first impression is soon replaced by what's inside: a relentless critique of the hypocrisy and racist attitudes of white society and many spoofs about the greed and corruption among Africa’s new political elite.
