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 people standing in the way of his policies to control empowered Blacks are Kareem Jenkins and his allies.
"The first series of the critically acclaimed superhero comic book Black introduced a world where only black people have superpowers, further explored in the spinoff projects Black [AF]: Widows and Orphans, Black [AF]: Devil’s Dye and Black [AF]: America’s Sweetheart. But the next chapter in the series threatens to upend the world as it’s known, as a racist President of the United States threatens to strike back against his perceived threat."

"I'm usually loathe to label any pop culture work 'important' because I think it reeks of pretentious, lazy writing. But if I were the type to call something important, WHITE would certainly fit the bill. Because how else would you describe the sequel to BLACK, a book that came out at the launch of the Trump era that posed the question: What if the only superpowered beings on Earth are Black?"

"Impressive… Black superheroes lead the resistance in this graphic novel."
