ASUNDA which is, as Deadline reports, inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle earth epics and Greek mythology,  has its lead hero in Niobe Ayutami, an orphan girl born of two nations, conceived through violence and raised in Oasis, a tiny desert town. Her father was a king in a country modelled on England and Europe, while her mother was the kidnapped female chief of a nomadic tribe of elves who roam a jungle region that corresponds to West Africa. Hunted by all, Niobe will search for her ancestors and the courage to bind them against an ancient enemy. Her adventures and the chronicles of other people or nations of Asunda have been covered in other titles from Stranger Comics, suchasNiobe, Dusu, ErathuneEssessa!
