Synopsis
Black Sage hunts down corrupt citizens of Nigeria and offers them the opportunity to make things right. When they don’t, he delivers judgement-day to them on earth. The world of Black Sage is one of justice and immediate judgement. There are no second chances with him. Tonye Hart (an NSS agent) died fifty-three years ago in a fire accident orchestrated by a corrupt Nigerian Government or so the world thought. He was transported to a facility in Midrasha by unknown forces and sustained by machines for fifty years. At the fulfilment of time, he was transported back to Nigeria as Black Sage and he is here to fix the ills of Africa with his lasso.

Black Sage (Tonye Hart): The 37-year-old recluse and Mossad trained earthwalker who is out to avenge the common man and correct his 53 year old wrong. He died fifty-three years ago after foiling the plan that would have set Nigeria on a path of glory. About the name - Black; because his face is always hidden under a Weston hat that casts a black shadow on his face. Sage; because he lives behind wise quotes whenever he visits.

    WOW! As a Briton of Nigerian descent I was DELIGHTED to find this! And I was never really a reader of comics in the first place, but I have a deep interest in politics and a concern for NIgerian progress and am trying to get back into art again. This is inspirational and I LOVE the concept and characters. I burst out laughing when I saw “Pretty Innocent”. Great to see women characters and people of all ages here. Definitely downloading the comic! Excellent idea.
