Covering comic books, superhero comics, graphic novels and cartoon strips from the early 20th century to the present, the book explores the ways in which Black comic artists have grappled with such themes as the Black experience, gender identity, politics and social media.

Black Comics: Politics of Race and Representation introduces students to such key texts as:
The work of Jackie Ormes
Black women superheroes from Vixen to Black Panther
Aaron McGruder's strip The Boondocks
