MAC AFRO Issue #1
Too hip for words.
Some would approach this comic and scream "stereotypical tripe!" Ah, but me thinks they protest too much. Satire depends on stereotyping.
It's the 70s (2070 that is) and Dolemite's cousin, or possibly second cousin twice removed, is released in comic form. All those traits of ethnic assumption and labeling are thrown in the face of the reader with the tender loving care of a skilled satirist. Wallow in it, you dig? The artwork is aggressive and demanding at times, but other blocks offer an almost unfinished quality. The offbeat nature is promoted by the unexpected turn of the art.
With Characters like Sonny, Caesar Brown, and the Nebula Riders you know it's gotta groove, baby.
Letís not waste time. Get down and get this comic. The art is incredible, the writing tight, hilarious and edgy. Sassy, sexy, outrageous with balls to the wall coolness dripping from each page.
BIG grateful shout-out for the included original sketches, mockups and inking art.
