Shanghala

This is a Ghana Comic about a mythical journey by an explorer to find the "tree of all knowledge" in the lost city of Shanghala.
Shanghala The Void

Our Ghana Comic story begins with an explorer reciting from an old ancient manuscript found in a desert tomb in West Africa….A long long time ago….

One day a visitor came to the city of Shanghala and offered an explanation as to what the ‘tree’ was and why it was, what it was.”

‘The Stranger’ said, “the tree is a cunning creature of bad spirits and was placed here to prevent you from knowing the truth. There is more to life than Shanghala, there are more beautiful things to see, in fact if the ‘tree’ didn’t hypnotize you with speech, you could go and experience another life for yourselves”

One of the inhabitants explains part of the downfall of Shanghala …

‘The Stranger’ asked father why he was still standing by the ‘tree’.

Our father replied, “I have need of the tree of knowledge”

why asked the stranger?

Father – “The one question that has not been answered is, who are you?”

‘The Stranger’ replied,
“I am nothing and everywhere I go, I must return to collect the gift I bring to all.”

Father – “And what is that?”

The Stranger – “The absence of knowledge, I bring the darkness … I bring “The Void”

Fruition – Rise of the Veggies

The Prophecy – Completion of actualization of our given right to materialize and attain accomplishment through self achievement with resolve, will impress upon all as we full fill self-realization of the power of Fruit and Veg. Consummation will finally conclude with execution of battle performances most severe, perfecting a world where Fruit and Veg stem high and mature to live ripe ages… then, and only then…. will fusion come to pass as perfection …Fruition

err …in English please…In short, in this Ghana comic, Vegetables rise under the persecution of Fruit. There are wars, they finally work out that it’s OK to be different and that they need each other to fight common enemies. They call a truce and all live happily ever after, until a new foe arises to threaten their world.

The story goes something like this. Fruits are the most favoured in the land of Ghabadi ( a small plot of bush land near Africa Lake across the road from Labadi Beach). Vegetables are seen as second class citizens. Our story tells of a prophecy where all Fruits and Veggies become united… how it began…one day in a land far far away… Veggies witness the aftermath of a Vegetable massacre, not seen in generations of plantations. They think it was the Fruits. In another part of the land, Fruits also witness a decimation of their Fruity brethren and they think it was at the hand of Veggies. Unbeknownst to them is that other creatures exist that eat both vegetables and fruit and they were the perpetrators of the killings. Both species outraged by these heinous acts declare war on each other.
