Christian Cooper, Alitha E. Martinez, Mark Morales, Emilio Lopez, and Rob Clark Jr. Launch Represent! from DC

Represent!

DC has announced a new digital-first series, Represent!, launching with “It’s a Bird” by Christian Cooper, Alitha E. Martinez, Mark Morales, Emilio Lopez, and Rob Clark Jr. This first chapter is available now, offered for free on participating digital platforms including readdc.com, Comixology, Amazon Kindle, Apple Books, and more. Additional chapters of Represent! will be available digitally in 2021.

In the announcement executive editor, Marie Javins said the digital series will showcase and introduce creators traditionally underrepresented in the mainstream comic book medium. “It’s a Bird” is a semi-fictionalized account of Christian’s very real evolution from a kid with a pair of binoculars to a man in an unexpected media spotlight after an altercation with a woman walking her dog in Central Park.

In Cooper and Martinez’s story, Jules, a Black teenager, is given a pair of old binoculars as he heads out for a morning of bird-watching.

For those inspired by the comic, already involved, or want to get involved in positive change, there are many organizations—including Color of ChangeEqual Justice InitiativeNAACP Legal Defense & Educational FundNational Center for Civil and Human RightsNational Urban League, and the Bail Project—working to advance social justice and civil rights in support of #BlackLivesMatter.
