Published by Damiani.

Captain Rugged is a multimedia graphic-novel collaboration between Nigerian musicians and artists Keziah Jones (born 1968) and Native Maqari (born 1980) that describes Nigeria’s oil boom of the 1970s. The hero, Captain Rugged, was conceived by Jones as an embodiment of the Nigerians who flooded the city of Lagos in hopes of making a living, inadvertently bringing about an extreme population explosion and a soaring crime rate. It also led to a bizarre jumble of architectural styles and uncompleted buildings around the city. From Captain Rugged’s birthplace in Makoko--an illegal water settlement on stilts within the Lagos lagoon--through the hectic bus stations of Obalende, this publication chronicles the hero’s adventures through the city. This publication includes a special card containing the url to download the tracks of Jones’ accompanying new album.
