90pp., colour illus., paperback, Durban & Livermore, 2019
Graphic novel, the sequel to Luke Molver's Shaka Rising (2017).
A retelling of the rule of Shaka kaSenzangakhona (c. 1787 - 1828), also known as Shaka Zulu, king of the Zulu Kingdom from 1816 to 1828.
"The graphic novels – Shaka Rising and the sequel, King Shaka – are imaginative, engaging, and innovative ways of narrating the legend of Shaka ... Characterization of the people in these comic books is very appealing. The illustrations are superbly designed, colorful, and support the storyline concisely. Molver shows deep understanding of Zulu history and culture ... Highly Recommended." Africa Access Review
