The comic book series – first published in 1942 – Manga features the exploits of Archie Andrews and his teenager friends who live in the fictional American town of Riverdale. It’s a sitcom-esque story about a reformed superhero comic collector named Jared who wants to sell a back issue of a ‘90s-era comic called Killstrike on eBay. The former lead singer of the band White Zombie, he is also a successful director of horror films, an occasional actor, a producer, and a comic book writer. Like many of the people on this list, Gibson released a song meant to accompany the comic; it was even sold on iTunes with a motion-comic edition of his tale.
On August 11th, 2012 — three months after Chiofalo vanished — a man named Lonnie Blevins walked into Wizard World’s Chicago Comic Convention looking to unload a box of comics. But for comics, the real action was in the booths, where buyers came from across the country to check out any interesting books that might be for sale. It was a rare book and an expensive one, too: after all, just a few months earlier, an All Star #3 had sold for $200,000 in a private Heritage sale. The books were deslabbed to throw investigators off the trail, but even without the barcode, the cover gave it away.
Expect to hear more on the books during this week’s San Diego Comic Con, which kicks off on Thursday 9th July. That’s not to say that black people didn’t read comic books: Titles like Batman, Superman, and Prince Namor: The Sub-Mariner sold like gangbusters then, and their continuing momentum has a lot to do with why DC and Marvel Comics are still around today. And so, finding himself at a creative crossroads, Evans set out to create his own comic book:All-Negro Comics. The stories were swinging, vibrant, and full of the kind of characters you’d expect to see in a 15-cent comic book from 1947.
