Aya of Yop City!!! They are making a movie!!!
Sooo, this is a series of “graphic novels” taking place in 1970’s Abidjan, specifically Yopougon, the craziest, busiest, loudest, most awesome neighborhood in Abidjan. The illustrations are beyond words amazing, seriously, they got Yopougon down! It’s written by an Ivorian woman who grew up in the Yop City and I am sooo proud of the fact that she is finally getting respect and being applauded for her awesome work.
Sigh, my future daughter will be reading this instead of Cinderella, and she will like it damn it.
