The first of the Ordinary Superheroes series of comics, which aims "to rethink the perception of heroism by introducing superheroes who are inspired by ordinary people who uplift their communities on a daily basis", is being launched in Cape Town in the East Precinct on 24 September at co-working space 75 Harrington. (A second event will be held in Khayelitsha on 25 September.)

Launch: Ordinary Superheroes Comic, Cape Town

The comic, titled Khazimla's Adventures, is inspired by Monde Sithole, "an adventurer, educational strategist, and futurist".

Synopsis: "Themba grows up haunted by dreams of 'otherworldliness' and adventure, a complete juxtaposition to the limitations of the township gang violence he finds acceptance and excitement in. He will soon discover another world that lies beneath the surface of the dusty streets and enter a journey to the mountain of self-discovery and transformation. But, as with all fulfilling journeys, it will not be without turbulence, which he must overcome."

The event will include a work-in-progress exhibition and live drawing.
