America’s favorites are here! Collect ‘em all!
From my 2002 Doubleday Graphic Novel NARCISSA I give you a rogue’s gallery of the most beloved Black archetypes in American film. Can anyone name one actor or actress who hasn’t played these roles at least once? Some make a career of it! And these characters won’t be leaving screens any day soon, because YOU love them!

My work will be included in OTHER HEROES, an upcoming exhibition of African American cartoonists at Jackson State University in Mississippi from April 5-25, 2007. A $50 catalog surveying the history of Blacks in comics and featuring an astounding variety of artists is being sold to raise money for Katrina relief.
