Zion is a 5-Part Comic Book by Fassil Kassa.

The story follows Desta, a college dropout who fell out with his parents when they didn't approve of his desire to be an artist. Now he works in a small grocery store.

This is pretty much Desta's life until he discovers a family heirloom one day called The Zion Crystal, which he discovers has ties to ancient Ethiopia. However, when he activates the crystal, Desta attracts the attention of an ancient being who's been searching for the Zion Crystal for a very long time.

Zion was funded on Kickstarter on August 10th, 2017, and released on November 16th, 2017.


Zion contains examples of:

  • Dream Intro: The comic begins with Desta in a dream where he's given a vague warning by a giant lion head ball, before waking up with a shout.
  • Evil Overlooker: One promotional image shows the villain looking over his shoulder down at Zion.
  • One-Word Title: Zion, of course.
  • Protagonist Title
  • Symbol Swearing: Desta partakes in this in his mad dash to get ready and get to work.
