Some pages from my new Comic Your Black Friend. I don’t think I’ve written about black alienation so directly. Came out alright.

 If you’re itching to read it all I’ll be at MICE in Boston, Ripexpo in Providence and NOCAZ Fest in New Orleans. Radiator Comics Distro will be sellin them soon too. Also Subscribers to my patreon can read this comic and all sorts of other comics including episodes of BttmFdrs, Daygloayhole issue one and two, and all sorts of short comics done for anthologies like Irene and As You Were.

Reblog this Black Tumblr if you like A Tribe Called Quest, J. Cole, Wale, Big KRIT, Lupe Fiasco, Jill Scott, etc, if you’re conscious, if you’re funny, and if you enjoy talking to your Black Tumblr family.

I wanna talk to all of y’all. If you reblog this I will start a conversation with you, so be prepared.
