Join us at Forbidden Planet NYC on Wednesday February 21st at 7pm when our guests will be writer Kwanza Osajyefo and artists Tim Smith 3 and Jamal Igle, creators of the acclaimed new comic series Black.
Not familiar with Black? It’s one of our best-selling graphic novels of 2017 and 2018. Here’s the rundown…
“What if only Black people had superpowers? After miraculously surviving being gunned down by police, a young man learns that he is part of the biggest lie in history. Now he must decide whether it’s safer to keep it a secret or if the truth will set him free.”
And some media mentions…
“A story like BLACK is still important, and necessary… It may attract one demographic more than others, but it parallels current events – so it is a universal story.”
-The Washington Post
“Black is admirable not only for its contribution to the visibility of the contemporary black experience within the realm of graphic storytelling, but also for providing a fictional form of catharsis from a very real and present fear that pervades the black experience in our present day.”
We’ll have copies of the first trade paperback, their new release in the Black universe Black AF America’s Sweetheart and some single issues from the first series available for purchase. Can’t make it to our event? You can pre-order copies of the original graphic novel at this link and America’s Sweetheart at this link signed by the creators attending our event at no extra charge. We’ll simply mail your copy(ies) the day after our event.
Hope to see the rest of you at FP on the 21st!
