20 Black Comic Book Creators on the Rise, Part One
Black comic book characters are enjoying a renaissance right now on both the page and screen, whehter it's Sam Wilson as Captain America, Bumblebee front-and-center in DC Super Hero Girls, Vixen guest-starring on Arrow, or Black Panther making his big-screen debut in Captain America: Civil War this summer and getting a solo series from Ta-Nehisi Coates and Brian Stelfreeze. But many of comics' best-known black characters are the work of white writers and artists, from a time when the industry didn't offer many opportunities for black writers and artists. The next generation of black heroes will come from black creators who can tell their own stories and offer up their own unique creations. From traditional superheroes with a twist, to everyday people trying to survive in an apocalyptic sci-fi world, these black comic book creators are doing it all.
