Papou, by Willy Zekid

Willy Mouélé, who uses the pseudonym Willy Zekid, is a comic artist, infographic designer and press illustrator. He is also one of the pioneering comic authors from Congo-Brazzaville. He started drawing early on, and among his earliest works was a comic about his group of friends, called 'Les Tambours de Brazza'. He then published in the satirical magazine Ngouvou in the 1990s. Forced by the civil war in his country, he emigrated to Ivory Coast in 1999, where he worked for magazine Gbich!. It was for this magazine, that he created the popular comic 'Papou'. He also made new stories starring Lassane Zohoré's character 'Cauphy Gomb'. He also worked on advertising art through Les Studios Zohoré.
