ARTBOOKSBLACK COMIX:African American Independent Comics, Art and Culture- In light of the comics boom that has taken place over the past 10 years, the artists, writers and publishers that make up the vibrant African American independent comics community have remained relatively unknown – until now. 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.
I was able to get a few copies of this beautiful hardcover from the publisher at a good price, so I can pass it on to my people.
|Yeah... that's my drawing of Li'l Madd Skillz from Champion of Children on the back cover!!!|
