The Future of Black By Gary Jackson, Len Lawson, Cynthia Manick Cover Image
Available Now


Here is an anthology that can be shelved with the comics as well as in the poetry section. Comics characters—and futurism—have become increasingly prominent subjects for Black poets, in particular in the years following the expansion of Marvel and the runaway success of Black Panther. This anthology’s editors have assembled some of the very best examples of this poetry and paired them with prominent artists whose work will parallel and speak to the content of the text.

This will be a beautiful book, produced with a full-color interior. The editors will have events and readings at bookstores and universities, as well as comics conferences. In selecting and obtaining permission for the works in this books, the editors have seen the mutual admiration of one group for the other, and will therefore feature a lively mix of poets and artists at their events.
