John Jennings, my good friend and colleague, has created an incredible cover image. I LOVE the image. I got a chance to hang out with John at the 2011 ASA conference. He organized a great panel entitled Black Panels, White Gutters: Race, Resistance, and Representation in American Comics and Sequential Art. John is working on some truly groundbreaking art. I got a peek at some of it and my vocabulary is not extensively enough to describe what I saw. Anyway, check him out here .
