PREVIEW: 'BLACK' Volume 1 by Kwanza Osajyefo, Tim Smith 3, Jamal Igle, and Khary Randolph

This week, the complete 6-issue mini-series BLACK comes to comic shops in a collected paperback edition.

“Three black teenagers in Bedford-Stuyvesant are shot by police officers in a case of mistaken identity.
One of them, Kareem Jenkins, survives and learns a secret: Only black people have superpowers. How does the world react as the truth is exposed?
This is BLACK, a new comic book series about black characters by black creators."
- The New York Times

 In a world that already hates and fears them – 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.

X-Men meets The Wire, BLACK’s Kickstarter blazed through Black History Month 2016 earning more than three time its funding goal.

BLACK began its life as a Kickstarter seeking to raise $29,999 and ultimately earned almost $100,000.

When it launched in comic shops last year, the response was staggering.

And now it's in development as a feature film!
