January 4, 2010
For those of you anxiously awaiting the release of our upcoming title, Black Comix: African American Independent Comics, Art + Culture (MBP’s very first comic book-themed publication!), the authors Damian Duffy and John Jennings have started a new website, chock full of info about the book and other African American independent comics and art.
Here’s the official info on the book:
The immense popularity of comics and graphic novels cannot be ignored. But in light of the comics boom that has taken place over the past 10 years the artists, writers and publishers that comprise the vibrant African American independent comics community have remained relatively unknown, until now.
From Damian Duffy & John Jennings, “Black Comix” brings together an unprecedented collection of largely unheard of, and undeniably masterful, comics art while also framing the work of these men and women in a broader historical and cultural context.
With a foreword by Keith Knight and over 50 contributors, including Phonzie Davis, Jan-Michael Franklin, Frances Liddell, Kenjji Marshall, Lance Tooks, Rob Stull, Ashley A. Woods and more, the cross section of comics genres represented includes manga, superheroes, humor, history, science fiction and fantasy. This book is a must-have for comics readers of a wide variety of tastes and ages.
