And finally, ‘Black Comix Returns’.
In 2010, Professor John Jennings and Dr. Damian Duffy compiled and published a 176-page collection of art and essays celebrating the vibrant African American independent comics community. Black Comix featured over 50 contributors, including Dawud Anyabwile, Eric Battle, Kenji Marshall, Afua Richardson, Larry Stroman, Rob Stull, Lance Tooks, and many, many more. It met high praise throughout the industry and quickly sold through its respectable print run despite interest and demand. I hope you get the opportunity to delve into these books, as you can see not a Superhero in sight. The hope is that it will encourage you to seek out more of where they come from, prick your conscience, well if not yours perhaps others. Peace. Wayne Boucaud
