Comic books and magazines have been common among the youth for the longest time, but in this digital world we live in right now, everything is evolving.
Kenya’s first digital comic titled ‘Hillside Campus’ has just been launched. Its debut episode has officially been published on Capital Campus, a section featured on the Capital FM website for campus matters.
The comic is about a group of campus students who live life on the fast lane as they study and build their lives. Graphics of this comic have been done by Movin Were. Vince Matinde is the guy behind the interesting and captivating story line which, when you look at it with a keen eye, reflects to what happens in our campus institutions.
Here is the synopsis and the first episode of the new ‘HillSide Campus’ digital comic.
Three campus dudes, Davy, Simo and Kevin are your normal campus buddies. Well not quite. They are more adventurous and almost moronic in their quest to spice up their lives in campus away from their homes.
In their second year in campus, there is a mystery of a disappearance of a third year girl. Five months later, they stumble on the girl’s secret blog diary. They get embroiled in the case as they follow her personal blog where she has left clues and to what could have led to her disappearance.
On her secret blog, she has described different characters in the campus. From lecturers who had advances on her, her ex boyfriends, the scams going on in the campus, the boy she liked and everyone who had threatened her etc.
But her blog is full of various issues any that would have led her to her death. The three decide to follow up on the clues that she has left to unveil the mystery, but they get more than they bargained for…
Apart from following the girl’s blog, the three students get in trouble with their lecturers for their behavior. Love and relationships are poured into the mix and this makes their life in campus more they could have imagined.
