Created by Kwanza Osajyefo, Tim Smith 3, Jamal Igle, and Khary Randolph, BLACK — which took Kickstarter by storm earlier this year, and is now being published by Black Mask Studios — follows Kareem Jenkins, a young African-American who discovers that he has superpowers — in a world where only black people can get them. We’re excited to bring you this exclusive preview.
In a time when the African-American community’s fraught relationship with the police is making headlines across the world, BLACK is shaping up to be a superhero comic ripped right out of some of modern America’s biggest social issues. Here are the first five pages of the comic.
