More Represent! from DC Begins in February

DC has announced more stories on the way for its Represent! digital series, adding another five digital “chapters,” releasing weekly beginning February 1, 2021. The chapters will be available on participating digital platforms, including Comixology, Apple, Amazon Kindle, Google Books, and others.

This past September, DC took an evolutionary leap forward in graphic storytelling with this digital-first series featuring stories from underrepresented voices, spotlighting personal stories outside the regular comic book medium. The debut story, “It’s A Bird,” was written by Christian Cooper with art by Alitha E. Martinez and Mark Morales; the story was inspired by Cooper’s viral encounter with a Central Park dog owner while bird-watching.

The next chapter, “Heritage,” is written by Jesse Holland with art by Doug Braithwaite. Holland is a former Associated Press journalist, host of C-Span’s “Washington Week,” editor of the upcoming Black Panther: Tales of Wakanda prose anthology, and the author of the Black Panther: Who Is the Black Panther? prose novel, which was nominated for an NAACP Image Award in 2019. Braithwaite is a fan-favorite DC penciler, inker, and cover artist whose notable works include the recently released Generations: Shattered, Future State: The Next Batman, Justice, and others.

“Heritage” is based on Holland’s Mississippi farm, which has been in his family since their first ancestor was freed from slavery—tended by his grandfather and his father before him. But as Jesse grows into a man, he’s unsure if a patch of land in the Piney Woods and a life of tilling soil is his true destiny. But destiny can mean so much more than dirt and a tractor…

Future stories include:

Book Three: “Food for Thought,” written by Regine Sawyer, art by Eric Battle

Sawyer, a comic book writer and founder of Women in Comics Collective International, and artist Battle have both contributed to DC individually and have united to tell the story of Lanice, whose passion for cooking and desire for a career in the culinary arts is challenged by the source of her inspiration—her father—who is concerned about his only daughter working in a kitchen, like so many Black Americans before her.

Book Four: “Believe You,” written by Nadira Jamerson, art by Brittney Williams

Howard University alumni Jamerson makes her comic book debut with Williams, who recently provided art for DC’s middle grade graphic novel Lois Lane and the Friendship Challenge. A young mother, Mai, has been struggling with her health ever  since the birth of her daughter, Dira. She’s exhausted, gaining weight and experiencing shooting pain through her legs, and she wakes up with numbness spreading across her entire body. She  is in constant agony. But the doctors don’t think anything is wrong with her—she’s stressed, she’s a hypochondriac, it’s just fatigue—and despite everything Mai does to make herself better, she still feels alone. Until she finally finds a way to advocate for her health and finds an ally who does more than prescribe…they listen.

Book Five: “My Granny Was A Hero,” written by Tara Roberts, art by Yancey Labat

Roberts, a National Geographic Storytelling Fellow, MIT Open Documentary Lab Fellow and avid scuba diving enthusiast, teams up with DC Super Hero Girls artist Labat in a story of a little girl realizing her dreams of heroism.

A little girl with Afro puffs, a potbelly, and a gap-toothed smile dreams of being a hero. She reads adventure books voraciously; she practices sword strokes and judo kicks in her bedroom in case she ever has to fight a dragon; she devours superhero movies, cartoons, and popcorn with big eyes. And every night, she looks out of her window and wishes upon the moon with all her heart to be called upon to help someone in a big way…when she discovers the story of her great-grandmother Cocu, and how Cocu’s superpower led to a heroic struggle for freedom. 

Book Six: “The Lesson,” written and drawn by Dominike “DOMO” Stanton

Stanton has been drawing comics for the last ten years; most recently, he provided art for House of Whispers, part of Neil Gaiman’s celebrated The Sandman Universe line of titles.

Stanton’s protagonist Dom got his butt kicked in school a lot…like…a lot a lot…for no reason. He got caught up in fights that had nothing to do with him or would get jumped simply walking the halls of his school or waiting for the bus home. Fed up and angry, he decides to join a local gym and learn how to box. But what starts out as a mission to fight back turns into something greater, and Dom is given the opportunity to stand up for himself in more ways than one.

Each new 10-page digital chapter will be available on Mondays for $0.99 each.

Harley Quinn Black + White + Red #17

Story: Liz Erickson
Art: Tom Derenick
Letterer: Josh Reed
Digital Release Date December 23 2020

“The Morning After”

Harley is absolutely determined to give Boxing Day the over-the-top celebration it deserves, and small considerations like “knowing what Boxing Day is” aren’t going to get in her way. But when a low-down crook steals an entire orphanage’s worth of presents one day after Christmas, you’d better believe she’s gonna get in THAT guy’s way…

Harley Quinn Black + White + Red #17

Review: Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red #17

Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red #17

DC Comics has done an amazing job with Harley: Quinn: Black + White + Red. The digital comic series has been a wonderful idea and breathe of fresh air in many ways. Each issue has delivered a new set of voices to deliver their take on the popular character. A new round of holiday theme digital comics has been released with Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red #17 celebrating Boxing Day! Yes, Boxing Day!

A crime has been committed and packages have been stolen that were supposed to go to orphans. Harley and Poison Ivy team up to find out who took them and save Christmas Boxing Day for the kids.

Writer Liz Erickson delivers an entertaining story that’s fun and goofy in all of the right ways. Opening with a fantastic poem, my only criticism is I’d like to have seen that carry through the entire issue. I’ll admit, it was a bit of a letdown from the issue opening with two pages of Christmas poetry to then shift to normal dialogue and storytelling. There’s a decent amount of humor and action mixed into the comic but overall, it plays things a bit more straight than some previous releases. That’s not a bad thing at all. It just shows how varied Harley Quinn can be and it’s still the character and her crazy antics.

Tom Derenick provides the art with lettering by Josh Reed. It’s again a different style and take on Harley and Ivy keeping each release from the series unique. There’s a bit more “realism” in this version toning down some of the crazier elements we’ve seen from other digital releases. It sticks to the three color look which works really well and overall delivers a bit more of a crime/action comic vibe to the visuals.

Harley Quinn: Black + White + Red #17 is another solid entry into the digital series. It delivers another style and voice to Harley and really show how varied the character can be in the look and tone of her adventures. It’s also the rare comic celebrating Boxing Day… there should be more.
