More takes on the comics

  • I think you are the only comic book artist in America to address this issue [stereotyping] rationally. I can't WAIT! I'm going to pump that comic BIG TIME!!! I work in a Catholic School in Harlem, I might just bring it and have the children read it.
  • Please keep me informed!

    Good Luck!
