PA – Black AF: America’s Sweetheart Signing

Kwanza Osajyefo appears at Amalgam Comics on Saturday, March 17th  at 1:00 PM for a signing of his new graphic novel BLACK AF: AMERICA’S SWEETHEART.

BLACK AF is the follow-up to the hit comic series BLACK, and it asks the question, “Can a black woman be America’s first superhero?”

Eli Franklin is a 15-year-old girl living in rural Montana-and she just happens to be the most powerful person on the planet. In the aftermath of the world learning that only black people have superpowers, Eli makes her debut as the superhero Good Girl, on a mission to help people and quell the fear of empowered blacks. When a super-terrorist threatens to take away everything Eli has worked toward, will donning a patriotic costume be enough for her to find acceptance?

America’s Sweetheart expands BLACK into a universe of heroes.
