Review: Coloureds no.1

Coloureds no.1 by the Trantraal Brothers

Coloureds is a fantastic new regular series of comics produced by the über-talented Trantraal Brothers. Experience everyday life in Cape Town’s townships, especially “inni Lavis” (in Bishop Lavis), through the uncompromising eyes of 9-year old Caitlin Hill and her little broe’tjie Nigel. See them plot to kill their abusive, alcoholic dad while they watch their mother Charmaine seek solace in religion.

Coloureds no.1 is available at Lobby Books for R3.

The artwork is outstanding and accomplished, the story edgy and compelling and the text… purest Kaapse Afrikaans!

I absolutely loved this first part of what promises to be an amazing serialised comic story. I can’t wait for the next installment!
