Hey everyone, only a few days left during Black History Month. Giving a shout to the Free Library of Philadelphia for highlighting some African American Comic Book historians.

My top 3: Yona Harvey (Marvel’s World of Wakanda); Keith Pollard (The Amazing Spiderman & Thor); Alitha Martinez (Marvel’s Iron Man, DC’s Batgirl)…
Your turn…and go!

The only one you all mentioned that I was familiar w/was Coates because I know of his non-comic writing. I just found out about Dwayne McDuffie via the last wkly drawing challenge. I’m going to have to check out all the cats mentioned. This was a great post Maryam.

Honestly I suck at remembering who does what.. but I love the Niobe series written by Sebastian A. Jones & Amandla Stenberg with art by Ashley A. Woods.
And I think Ronald Wimberly has got to be one of the coolest people alive, ever.
