LSPD Comic is a new breed of Nigerian comic that is in a world and standard of its own. It was launched on March 22nd at Ozone Lounge, E Center, Yaba, Lagos, With the likes of Tinsel's Gideon Okeke, Maltilda Obaseki, Linda Ejiofor, Chris Okagbue, Tomi Fadaunsi (Philip, Angela, Bimpe, Emil and Salewa) who graced the event for celebrity autographing.
The 30 page purely Nigerian comic magazine features riveting and very thrilling stories with out of the world plots and twists, very interesting characters and most importantly educative columns that leave a difference in the minds of the readers (Entrepreneur, HEARTITUDE, ORO and Star Gazers). The magazine would be published monthly and this would be consistent and comes in EXTREMELY reader friendly prints.
The characters and concept of the comic is purely a feature that Nigerians clearly resonate and identify with. There are no super heroes with capes, flying here and there in the comic LSPD Comic believes in super heroes, welcomes the idea but chose not to set out with the concept, because judging from the history of comics in Nigeria, the kinds of comics that made waves in the 80s were pedestal and day-to-day Nigeria life comics (PAPA AJASCO, SUPER STORY, IKEBE SUPER, FUN TIMES, LULU, BENBELA, DAUDA...)
LSPD Comics is a detective series magazine and the feature stories revolve around crime, investigation, what policing should be like in the clime, intrigue, romance, betrayal, it's like a drawn movie (storyboard).
The magazine also rewards it's readers with monthly freebies. All they need do is buy a copy, go to page 20 and tear out the numbered coupon strip, keep it and watch out for the next issue to find out winning numbers. 10 people will be rewarded with recharge cards, movie tickets, shopping vouchers, phone accessories, e.t.c - EVERY MONTH!!!
