Black by Popular Demand!

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!

(We regret that one of your faves, HOT-ASS The HOOCHIE-HO couldn't make it due to space considerations... if you must find her right away we suggest you try any Hip-Hop music video. The Management.)

Mississippi Burnin'

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.
