Marikana

On 16 August 2012, the South African Police Service opened fire on a crowd of striking mineworkers at Marikana, killing 34 and wounding dozens of others. Loyiso Mkhize goes back in time to the site of the massacre, seconds before the first shot has been fired, and imagines it not only as a fight against flesh and blood,but also as a metaphysical battle between the genocidal neoliberal powers of this dark world and the ancestral god.

CHRONIC_BROADSHEET_COVER

This graphic story features in the Chronic (August 2016), an edition in which we explore ideas around mythscience, science fiction and graphic storytelling. In opposition to the idea of the future as progress – a linear march through time – we propose a sense of time is innately human: “it’s time” when everyone gets there.

To purchase in print or as a PDF head to our online shop, or get copies from your nearest dealer.
