THE BOOK IS AWESOME!!! I mean a collection of artist of African descent that do comics!! WHAT?! I wish there was something like this when I was coming up as a young artist. Although I confess, I did have some pretty good teachers. There are people, young and old, that need to see that there quite a number of us doing this work we call comics, within the mainstream context and outside the mainstream. There men and women creating and giving voice to our stories. Stories we say we want to see, and stories we haven't thought of seeing or thought existed. John Jennings and Damian Duffy have put together a real treasure here. The ideas, the talent...it's all humbling and awe inspiring. Not only are there ground breaking artist such as Dawud Anyabwile (formally known as Dave Sims) creator of "Brother Man" and Kenji, creator of "Witch Doctor", but John and Damian feature an historian, Professor William Foster III who chronicles the history of black in comics on the page and off, and they feature convention organizers that are artist as well such Turtel Onli, founder of the Da Black Age of Comics convention in Chicago and dubbed father of the The Black Age of Comics, Yumi Odum, founder of ECBACC (East Coast Black Age of Comics Convention)in Philadelphia, PA, Alex Simmons,creator of the Black Jack franchise, and founder of the Kids Comic Con in The Bronx, New York, and Joseph Wheeler III and Iyabo Shabazz, dynamic husband and wife team and founders of Onyx Con in Atlanta,GA.Read more ›
