Episode 74: Godfather of SA Comics Geekery with Moray Rhoda!

Moray Rhoda has a long and distinguished career in the independent/underground comics scene in South Africa, with many notable achievements to his name: he was one of the founding members of the Igubu Comic Book Collective; was the man behind Insurrection studios in the early 2000s; organised the Comics Brew Festival with Grant Muller, a sponsored event that showcased invited foreign artists in local exhibitions and workshops.

Moray is a contributing member to SECTOR, South Africa’s only on-going bi-monthly comic, The Lil5 comic and the Velocity Graphic Anthology. Moray and team Velocity hosted the first SA comic panel at San Diego Comic Con in 2013 (and a follow up panel in 2014).

Moray was a presenter at this #ICON2016's panel on the state of comics in South Africa with previous RTG alums Ray Whitcher and Nas Hoosen. We managed to catch him during the con to chat about his life in comics and what drives him to do more.
