BlackProject #2: Black
What it’s about: Timed to Black History Month comes a Kickstarter campaign to fund the new independent superhero science fiction original graphic novel Black from Kwanza Johnson p/k/a Kwanza Osajyefo (former DC Comics Digital Editor) and Tim Smith III (Iron Man, The Amazing Spiderman). Illustrated by Inkpot-Award winning artist Jamal Igle (Molly Danger, Supergirl), Black asks the question, “In a world that already fears and hates them – what if only Black people had superpowers?” Black follows the story of a young man, Kareem Jenkins, who, having miraculously survived being shot by police, learns that he is part of the biggest lie in history. Kareem must decide whether it’s safer to keep history’s secret, or if the truth will set him free. Rounding out Black’s creative team are DC Comics illustrator Khary Randolph, who will contribute covers and additional artwork, and editor Sarah Litt, formerly of Vertigo and DC Comics.
The coolest backer reward: The Black History Pledge provides backers with an original piece of Black artwork by Jamal Igle, along with all of the lower-tiered backer rewards.
