Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

United States of Captain America #1

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this week.

Barbaric #1 (Vault Comics) – Owen the Barbarian has been cursed to do good with what remains of his life. His bloodthirsty weapon, Axe, has become his moral compass with a drinking problem. We’re sold!

By the Horns #3 (Scout Comics) – A fantastic fantasy series about a woman bent on revenge against the unicorns who killed her beloved.

Darling #1 (Source Point Press) – New York City is caught up in a missing 8-year old girl but Francis Darling accidentally stumbles onto the machinations behind her kidnapping and the drug war that ensues. But has he really?

Factory Summers (Drawn & Quarterly) – Guy Delisle recounts his summers working in a paper mill.

Made in Korea #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was fantastic and we’re expecting this one to be just as good. We felt something was lurking under the pages in the first issue and we want to see what, if anything, that is.

Mighty Crusaders: The Shield (Archie Comics) – The comic has been full of drama but we want to see this Rob Liefeld driven update on the classic Archie characters.

Parasomnia #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Cullen Bunn and Andrea Mutti, we’re in just for that. The story is about two worlds split between dreams and reality.

Power Rangers Unlimited: Edge of Darkness #1 (BOOM! Studios) – There’s a lot of buzz about this debut which features the Phantom Ranger. Expect sell-outs and new printings.

United States of Captain America #1 (Marvel) – Marvel is going to explore the legacy of Captain America and introduce a bunch of new characters inspired by the icon. We want to see what the series has to say about the character and what he represents.

White #1 (Black Mask Studios) – Black looked at a world where only Black individuals have superpowers. White focuses on the reaction to that and the individuals attempting to stop them.

White #1 Goes Back to Print After Orders of Over 40,000

White #1

The first issue of the empowered Black superheroes comic book series White (sequel to 2016’s BLACK) by Kwanza Osajyefo, Tim Smith 3, Jamal Igle, and Khary Randolph has garnered over 40,000 ordersselling out ahead of its June 30th release date. Black Mask Studios is going back to press for a second printing.   White is the sequel to the 2016’s hit Black. Black is currently in development as a feature film with Warner Bros.

Planned as a limited edition series with a 2,500 copy print run for the main cover, White received orders nearly twenty-times higher than its initial printing. In response to the massive demand, the team has decided to open the print run up with no limits placed on the reprint run.

White was successfully Kickstarted in March 2019 receiving $47,115 from 1,420 backers. The comic was originally estimated to be delivered in March 2020 and delayed due to COVID. Unfortunately, as of the announcement of the massive first printing, backers are speaking out about not receiving the items they pledged for. In full disclosure, I am one of those individuals.

In a world that already hates and fears them – what if only Black people had superpowers. That’s the setting of the Black universe of comic books. After miraculously surviving being gunned down by police, a young man learns that he is part of the biggest lie in history. He must decide whether it’s safer to keep it a secret or if the truth will set him free. 

Now, the team that asked “What if only Black people had superpowers?” is back with the sequel to the critically acclaimed series, BLACK. It’s been three years since the world learned only Black people have superhuman abilities, and the United States has responded by electing Theodore Mann to the presidency. The only person standing in the way of his policies to control empowered Blacks are Kareem Jenkins and his allies. 

White #1 second printing will be released on July 21.

The Blacksuperpower Universe Thrives Despite Entertainment’s White Privilege

Guest post by Kwanza Osayefo

There is an odd resistance to the concept of a world where only black people have superpowers. Yet, we’ve all accepted nearly 100 years of media in which only white men have superpowers.

Black representation in media hasn’t even reached levels that reflect actual demographics in the US – so opposition needs to chill out. There’s just one comic where only black people have superpowers.

****

It’s weird that people take for granted that blerds have accepted casts of entirely white comics for the history of the medium, but when the characters are mostly black, some of those same people start feeling a way.

I created BLACK because I was inspired by seeing my face and culture represent in Milestone comics. Their absences meant young black kids today wouldn’t have that same acknowledgment of themselves as I did.


The White Kickstarter campaign from Kwanza Osayefo, Tim Smith 3, Jamal Igle, and Khary Randolph ends Sunday, March 31 at 11:59pm EDT.

Below you can find the variant cover for White and first five pages of the series.

White #1 Kickstarter variant

Explore How America Reacts to a World Where Only Black People Have Superpowers in White

How does America react when only black people have superpowers? In the sure-to-be-controversial six-part comic book series White, co-creators Kwanza Osajyefo and Tim Smith 3, Inkpot-Award winning artist Jamal Igle, and cover artist Khary Randolph reunite for the sequel to their acclaimed graphic novel and Kickstarter sensation, Black.

How does a nation struggling with a history of racial inequality cope in a world where only black people have superpowers? Our story asks: In a time of supposed inclusion and diversity, how far will those in charge push back to retain the status quo?

Kwanza Osajyefo

In White, Theodore Mann, whose family exploited empowered blacks for centuries, is now President of the United States. Mann’s administration has exacted controversial measures to deal with the empowered he’s deemed terrorists and is stoking national tensions to win public support for Mann First, a cybernetically-augmented soldier program. The main person standing in the President’s way is X –  once known as Kareem Jenkins – who has become a symbol of resistance against the Mann Administration.

For White, the original Black creative team―Kwanza Osajyefo, Tim Smith 3, Jamal Igle, Khary Randolph, Sarah Litt, Derwin Roberson, and Dave Sharpe―will return for the second part of a planned trilogy, and will be joined by inker Juan Castro. If funded by Kickstarter, White will be a 6-part, ad-free periodical comic book series. The first printing – with variant covers – will be exclusive to  Kickstarter backers. Comic book retailers will be able to order standard editions directly from Black Mask Studios after rewards are shipped.

The number of backers of White will unlock Kickstarter exclusive variants by comic book industry legends: Ashley A. Woods, Jamal Igle, Jeremy Love, ChrisCross, Sanford Greene, and Denys Cowan.

Issue one of White is estimated to be delivered to backers October 2019. The limited edition variant of the graphic novel and comic book shop retailer bundles will ship to backers in early 2020.

The White Kickstarter campaign is live as of March 4, 2019.
