Nat Turner

By Kyle Baker

I would strongly recommend that you buy every book by Kyle Baker.  Whether he’s doing comedy, superhero adventure, war stories, Bible tales or historical documents like this one, his storytelling skills are superb. As a writer and artist, his versatility, craftsmanship and originality are spectacular.

But if you could only get one…and thank Goodness that’s not the case…then you must read NAT TURNER. Not that it’s typical of his work, because it’s not. NAT TURNER is an unflinching look at a horrifying period in history, told with brutal honesty. There’s not much to say, just pick it up, read it, encourage others to do the same, then let’s meet back here and talk about it.


By Mat Johnson

Novelist Mat Johnson has quickly mastered the comic book and superhero medium. INCOGNEGRO is a period piece, no capes or powers, but it’s a gripping yarn about a heroic investigator.  A black writer for a Harlem newspaper who can pass for white goes down south to cover lynchings.  That is a scenario fraught with jeopardy and Mat pays it all off wonderfully.

Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow

by James Sturm and Rich Tommaso

I didn’t know what to expect when I picked this book up, but the storytelling and art was so fresh I didn’t put it down. Great book about a great subject.
