Black Cotton Launches in February from Scout Comics

Set in an alternate reality where the social order of “white” and “black” is reversed, an elitist family, the Cottons, are rocked by a tragic shooting that begins to unravel long standing family secrets that could not only destroy the family, but also divide the fragile social climate of the world.

Elijah Cotton, the modern patriarch of the Cotton family and business mogul of Black Cotton Ventures, tries to manage the public outrage and fallout from his police officer son, Zion Cotton’s, shooting of a young white woman. Meanwhile, Qia Cotton, the only daughter of Eljiah and the CEO of Black Cotton Ventures, attempts to assuage the situation by paying off the victim and her family; Xavier Cotton, the youngest Cotton and sophomore in high school, works on a history project that takes him down a rabbit hole of family history.

Black Cotton is written and co-created by Patrick Foreman and Brian Hawkins with art by Marco Perugini, lettered by Francisco Zamora, and graphic design by Jerry Nilsson. It comes to shelves in February from Scout Comics.

Review: DarkCat #1: Return of Favors

Darkcat #1: Return of Favors

There are very few times in life when you get to make amends. Most of the time when one makes a mistake we hope to never make it again. If you’re smart, you look to learn from the mistake you made. There’s always a lesson in failing. It’s rare for one to be able to have a do-over. Those chances are very rare making these instances more than what you need.

Avengers: Endgame has shown us you can make amends but not everything can be fixed. The casualties the movie sustained was more than impactful. It changed how our heroes fought against evil making the next chapter in this world even grimmer.

What happens when you find out someone else’s misfortune was because of you? In the prequel, DarkCat: Return Of Favors #1, we find one hero coming to grips with past sins.

We are taken to Argentina, where we meet DarkCat, a superhero, whose scuffle with a police officer Agent Snaider leaves him with many regrets. He convinced the police officer to let him go costing him to get demoted. DarkCat decides to do something about it by digging up dirt on the very man who can change Snaider’s life, Commissioner Gutierrez. Before he could leave with evidence he’s accosted by the private security of the police commissioner. From there, it’s a race to expose a criminal network before it’s too late.

Overall, an excellent story that sets the stage for an epic world and an immense array of characters. The story by Francisco Zamora is action-packed, fun and intense. The art by the creative team is gorgeous and electric. Altogether, a comics universe comics readers all over the world can get into.
