Mazela the Mighty 1

This is an original South African comic book, unsure publication date. I suspect 1971-1972 (as there is an advert for Records for sale on the Inside Back Cover, which includes titles released up to 1971). It is published by Preview News ("A Preview Production"), Verwoerdburg. No creator credits. 

It tells the story of Mazela, a young man from the fictional village of Lettsepan. The ghost of his grandfather visits him and endows him with the super power to manipulate objects made of wood. He moves to the city, to fight crime, disguised as Superhero Mazela the Mighty. 

If anyone has more information on this series - please get in touch.
